like clockwork guaranteed

Seasons arrive not like clockwork guaranteed as a definite
you can tick the days off on a calendar
31 separate boxes,
sometimes less
but never more

covered by the grease from a 158 meals cooked on blue naked flame
the night before
or left behind?

back of the pack
no one remembers who comes second,
or as a matter of fact,
who umpired the match,

or the name of the supporter in the red jacket,
small boy to his right blonde hair shining in sunlight

stuck in the sky like a limpet mine
