Thanks in part to Louis M and William W: another love poem
There’s a gap in the railings
We didn’t realise was there
At the end of a jitty I’ve always known
Where still time stands
And the burdock leaves are
awnings we can cover the ants with
to protect them from the rain
I want you to be warm
I want you to never be cold
I’d been orbiting for years, and now
I’ve fallen into a world you’re in
And the main thing is you’re in it
with me and
Earth has not anything to show
Your intelligent hands, striking chords
inside me and out
I’m led into my own depths.
Your dark eyes, bridges over
crevasses I’d only dared squint at.
Dark into light.
In this new world
The sun glances off angles
