About the Poem

A poem about plumbing, which very nearly makes sense, but leaves you with a niggling feeling that you might not have understood it at all.

Radiator Guy

Radiator guy won’t you come out tonight,
My heart is cold, my head is light,
Come let the water through my system,
Heat my pipes, catalogue them, list them,
Stoke my boiler, clank my chain,
Make my heating work again.
