Now out of stock (with no regrets):
Sulphur hair restorer
The woman pegged in her kitchen work,
servile and serving.
The cigarette’s golden hour
Pages of rifles and revolvers
Cartridges for shooting rook and rabbit.
Still with us, in nostalgia’s hooks:
The Lion and the Unicorn, refreshed
and striding out.
This little world of England – precious stone in a silver sea
Spirit of the Blitz, venerated by those
who never knew it.
(Gone or just below the skin?):
A poster for soap:
Cussons Imperial Leather – rich, white,
(The label, I hear is the last to wash off as it clings to its slither of soap.)
