Daisy by Chris McCabe

“Maybe Dadda needs these for his poems”
the Boy says & picks three flecked pink.
The insides are SM58 microphones, yellow,
the one-two sound-check explodes in white
word-fronds. If this was the EVENT we’d be
waiting for the visuals. If this was the EVENT
I’d want the answer. If this was the EVENT
I would ask you to marry me. If this was
the EVENT I’d be just about half-crazy.

In this EVENT there is a boy
with three daisies, here for the love of you.
