WRITE

Write with the surge

Of words that boils up,

Nor tide over the roar

And rushing hiss, the fast bliss

Of licking, foaming sound

Eating sand and landwards,

Landwards up to cloud

Up to grass and sun.

Past the decent reach,

Roaring past the pitch

And yaw, troubling the roads

Eating the lazy lean of worn pathways,

Spitting out new views raw and hot with life,

life that burns bright and dances wild.

Life that lifts its skirts

And does not care.

A fire and flood of windswept words

That will whisper and remain:

“That we were here, that we were here”

Long into the longer silent night.

ANGEL FALLS, ELOQUENT

Dropped
They fracture,

Crumble,
Separate seconds
From stillness.

Meteor words
Burning fast

A lever
For omens,

Simply
The gravity

Of bodies
Too heavy
With burning heart.

Golden alphabets

Spilled
Tumbling
To flagged floor.

To carve
A sigh,
A cursive line.
(Improbable
Evolution as ever).

Descent into matter.
Dissonant mutter.
Disowned stutter.
A step
Hitched,
Syncopate.

Fabric of time
Glazed pattern
Wingbeat.

World
Whorled
Whirled.

Blake,
Startled awake
Mouths
Eyeless,
A ghost
Of muscle,
Vision sinew.
