I genuinely hope you don’t think that this is a cop out, but I thought I’d try a list poem that has been in my head for a while but didn’t seem to be arranging itself into neatly the usual concepts in a structure with extra padding and rhymes way.

Things Which Do Not Last
Flawless snow covered fields
The perfect weight per height
The best days
The worst days
The most vivid dreams
Immaculate table settings
Desserts in general
The ideal light for everything.
