The Angry Corrie 1: May 1991

Earmuffs

On top of the Ochils
was one thing - even if
his fluffy red earmuffs resembled
a fungiform walkman
At least there the wind
seared from the west,
bringing stinging horizontal hail
to penetrate rucksack cagoule
nose mouth and, presumably,
unmuffled ears

But back at the car
two thousand feet lower
with the weather sunlit
and spring-warm again ?
Here they were merely absurd
out of place, not even functional
two cartoon mouse ears
tacked-on and untactful
a Disneyland head
uncertain
on Central Belt shoulders
