This reminds me a lot also of Long Distance II because I think he's trying to discuss his mother and his grief, but I genuinely have no idea what the words "Hog that grate" mean, so that almost- but not quite- ruins it for me.

In response to comment by Missy, "Hog that grate" means to sit closely in front of the fire - you tit.

Missy, i know exactly what you mean by not understanding things he says. If it wasnt for my nan, i wouldnt have a clue what he was writing about! But once you understand it...they seem so much better! dont you agree? Im doing his poems for Alevel, and damn its hard!
