There was a small farm in a tiny village in Wales.
At the river a bridge led to a hundred years ago
a time of exactly the shape of the house and fields
bordered by river and tip.
The man lived in today  on our side of the bridge
to shop, to work, get drunk.
The woman never left.
When they had to, the farm ceased to exist.
