Confined to bed

Angina days, blue snow,
time tucked away
in cut-out arches,
time is blue, time is snow,
red sleeves, black hat,
time is a yellow woman.

Angina days, Swiss,
blue Devon, black Cambrium,
commedia dell’arte time,
slipper red and Silurian red,
wall map of England yellow and time.

Angina days, blue Kent,
time so yellow that none can tell it,
a black index finger protrudes
from a blue glove and points you
the way home along the red wall.
