mirrored light
shattered
into a present’s shards
needle-thick thin
that prick
lagrimal sap
falling
setting
in one long moment
caught in amber
to last
to live
a whole
future

where the heart is
an island steadfast
washed by warm-stone light
a flood of dry tears fallen
in this copse of dreams
pricked in waking
the blood of a life shared
runs into furrows
of tomorrows
behind Hesiod’s plough.
the weight of this now
this quiet
is nature’s logic.

dropped rain slides
down the arc
of time’s hammering stroke
love’s luxation
her stigmata
bleed anti-clockwise
spotting
that beautifully sad curve
becoming a line
of memory
