I AM SOUND AS I LAY SOFTLY IN PILLOW’S HEART……


The grey dawn mist of apples, peering fresh, soaked, dew-lined and hearty

A mothers smile and fawns caress, limpid the water on the edge of time

I am humid, fervant, sweat-soaked and languid, washed by endless rivers of night

We jump like so many crazy locusts on electric wire, full, bound by every impulse

A night-hawks curr, the rush of blood to wounded scars and bleeding wounds

Far into the night many moons, hence the comets scare the starlings coal wings

A broken pencil, a fainting moment and two antlers locked in boardroom crash

I am aware of all this as the derricks roar softly and the sounds of lead mend in the night                                                                                                                                                            sky

Pity the saints who trod in firstborn purity, only finding cave-worn habits and hostility

I am a moment, a flit, and birds beat of wing, I am sound as I lay softly in pillow’s heart
