Leopard Saris

Oscar Wilde spoke of
fox hunting as the pursuit
of the inedible by the
'Big game' safaris
skin leopards
and lions of their
Godgiven saris.
The unconscious know
not what they do.

one of the most powerful expressions of disillusionment I've read, Philippa: both what's said and what is implied (I guess it's true that all poems have a 'subtext', an atmosphere they bring to life) .
You praised yourself For coping with the children In my absence, But to bring me home Without a single spoken word Was unforgiveable, Love and pray your good poems, really heart of heart and its love make this nice lovely poem
