Epitaph

 

I gave you the forest,

Full-leaved, carefully escaping itself;

Its carved secrets ringing in  

The shrinking mouth of a lost bird.

 

You took it, direct as a prayer.

The way a child receives an alien

Fruit, or discerning fly

Addresses a casual wound.

 

And we settled.  Inseparable

Yet estranged in our sharp-shaped thoughts,

Dropping from the steps to

The muted absence of what lay ahead.

 

It was a place borrowed

Where we borrowed ourselves,

Warped in time’s rumours.

With vines.  Flint.

 

And you smiled across the

Interlude to a vanishing point:

A hint of verge where the white stone lay-

 

Its dreams still learning;

Its lyrics, grey.

 

(from my next collection)
