From the collection Blood dimension & other poems (2021).
Eyes upon a ghastly moor,
beside a bleak mere, a human form
nowhere, amongst mist, wet earth
and alien silences—
words learned, transcribed, merged,
dissipate, spent breath in depths,
messages, from new thoughts;
heavy bone, weighted lung and heart;
perverse biology, as carrion—
she starts a car, carries on, drives
night cradles her, so familiar,
deserted in a wandering, a learning;
locus, solus, one and the same.
