Small things in the cathedral

A place to see the little things
between the monuments and tombs. As in
the chapel of St Gabriel, a pencil.

Here they are, behind the obvious.
Next to the chapter house, a cupboard
with a bowl, four toilet rolls.

How small things quietly wait, make us
forgivable. Inside the vestry,
just inside the door, an iron.

You might disagree with half of it, but you’ll enjoy reading all of it. Try your first 10 weeks for just $10
