Is There Life on Mars?


A Sunday in June

Quite late in the month

It is very quiet;

What does that mean?
There should be more noise

The neighbour’s baby crying

A stray dog howling

The Jam rehearsing in a nearby schoolyard.
A car pulls up,

It’s sound system drowning out the tappets

And the low throb of its designer exhaust adding to the bass.
There is life on Mars.
