‘Sunday afternoon’

Sunday afternoon
in a heat wave
lolling on the sofa

Lambert and I
watch Netflix
Rome … the empire

swords and sandals
but Cambridge academics
for authenticity

a fact lodges
in my wilting wits
those Roman roads

so hi-tech … so helpful
in the transmission
of the Antonine plague

and where have I heard
that before … ah yes …
cruise ships and aeroplanes
