Now it’s clear that white-
Bearded coughing old
Man my bike almost ran over

Holding a sickle in his right hand and dangling
A fag from his nicotine-stained left
Could not have been death incarnate,

So why did that image of him rising abruptly up
Through the darkness of morning scare
The living daylights out of me?
