Inspired by W. B. Yeat’s ‘A Coat’


I made my life a coat

Just like you and everybody else

We wear it to the gallery

Oh, believe me, it’s a must!


In every schemed ceremony

At each half-attentive gathering

It shines and shimmers

With all its jewellery substitutes


The pearls slew his eyes

The rubies catch her throat

It is a heavy coat

Covered with the most delicate pretence


When I cast off my coat

Like a snake casts off its colourful skin

How I wish I hadn’t learnt all the skills to weave

But, I’ve already lost the sense of naked innocence
