Painting the outrigger of my RN Sea Harrier
(Five different colours in half an inch.)
The sea. Memories sparked. Sublime Welsh Coast,
But Lockdown Surge Testing intercepts
With that suggestion of the surging sea.
Stop the rot!
Tiny unwanted crevice between minute parts,
Decision: I’ll leave it hoping for fill with paint.
Later, delay has failed. Crevice expanded.
Difficult Surge Filler now applies.
Face the truth! Aeroplane modelling:
A delusional therapy.
The Harrier, proud and bellicose
Combats only my longing for escape.
My dreams: Earth's cracks and crevices,
The Pembrokeshire coast, the colours in Cornwall
That painters praise, and that roar of the sea, Not the C,
Outclassing the unwanted Harrier roar above.
