The Retreat

"The stray corpse of a snowman
sinks into the mud. The rain has stolen
his face and a testimony melts in his mouth"

Cherry

The Obligatory Snow Poem

I have spent the afternoon in 1961,
and out on the quad I think I witness
Adolf Eichmann building a snowman.

Cherry

So it goes.

I stand amongst a wreath
of antlered trees.
The hills, cave-coloured,
blue with rain, seem
to sway like kelp.

Cherry

Yellowing

I dreamt about my uncle's death last night.
Not about my uncle. He was already dead when the dream started.

Ithaca

I sit in the trees
that are made from amber glass,
making notes, and think of another tree
growing in Jerusalem
for those who invented God.
