the title got me thinking


we had comics on tuesdays and thursdays

from the middle shop up the hill


sometimes there was a whale

in the story with a picture


round grey with a fountain in it’s head

it’s tail akimbo                                   later


i learned that they don’t look like that

really   .


he said


real stars do not have points  .


i guess i shall never see a whale

though some bones are over the door

in mallwyd church porch


up the road
