Simon Leake writes

Domestic Scene

here I am sleeping
in the early part of the twenty-first Century
two thousand years after Christ
ten thousand since we started demarcating;
drawing imaginary lines in the earth

later I am reading
and you come into this room on the second of April
to show me your alteration to your new dress
and you seem as natural to this space
as any other object it houses, but alive

the living have a habit
of appearing, disappearing
in an instant…..
