Handicapping

A lady calls

A LADY CALLS

(THE LISTENERS BY WALTER DE LA MARE)


“IS THERE ANYBODY THERE?” SAID THE GOLFER,

ON THE SUNLIT DOOR SHE KNOCKED

AND HER CAR GLEAMED IN THE CAR PARK

EACH DOOR SECURELY LOCKED:

AND A PLANE FLEW IN THE SKY

ABOVE THE GOLFER’S HEAD

AND ON THE DOOR SHE TAPPED A SECOND TIME

“I KNOW YOU ARE THERE” SHE SAID

BUT NONE DARE ANSWER THE GOLFER

NONE PEERED FROM THE BALCONY

AND LOOKED DEEP  INTO HER EYES

FROM THE BASTION OF MISOGYNY

THE CROWD WHO UNSEEN HEARD

THAT DWELT IN THE R N’ A

STOOD LISTENING IN THE SUNLIGHT

ASHAMED THEY LOOKED AWAY

SUNK DEEP IN CRIMSON CHAIRS

GOLF’S  H Q, OFFICE BAR AND HALL

DISPLEASURE SWIRLED ON THE AIR

AT THE GOLFER’S GENTLE CALL

AND SHE FELT IN HER HEART THEIR ANGER

THEIR SILENCE TO HER CRY

AND HER CAR GLEAMED IN THE CAR PARK

AND A PLANE FLEW IN THE SKY.

QUITE LOUD SHE KNOCKED AGAIN

“GENTLEMEN” SHE SAID ‘TIS 2003”

I AM HERE BUT YOU WILL NOT ANSWER

“OPEN THE DOOR TO ME”

NEVER A SOUND FROM WITHIN

THOUGH EACH SOFT SPOKEN WORD

RIPPLED OVER THE CRIMSON CHAIRS

EACH R N’ A MEMBER HEARD

AY THEY HEARD THE CAR DOOR OPEN

AND THE SOUND OF TYRE ON STONE

AND HOW RELIEF SURGED BACK  AGAIN

IN GOLF’S MOST ANCIENT HOME.

  Vivien: Isn't that absolutely brilliant!
