Heat (1950)
larrylark

Slung into tumbledown shed,
 1
crowned by caulked roof,
 2
stalking cat removed itself
 3
while winter's fuel
 4
flowed from hessian sacks.
 5
 
 
Among propped shafts,
 6
faint laughter, dark jokes,
 7
back breaking labour and sweat,
 8
as men played roulette with death.
 9
A canary sang in its crepuscular home,
 10
while we remained warm.
