a sudden god shakes his limbs   below ground black earthed bees   swarm through the valley    touching the underside of air

in a corner of the year   cold early dark    a place fenced off from warmth   my sister lives with a black eyed dog    not her own   we all fall down    down on us something broken falls    some small fragment of stars    splintered in those eyes

we wear each other’s masks   shadow puppets good and evil    such disguise a plot device    a marriage of confusion love   we are growing older   birthdays layer like a rising gamelan chorus

the campsite grass  thick green after rain    cobbled streets slippery with ocean    a gun turret expecting attack    we pitch tent and sleep    where we  fall

in the violet dunes    light of a thousand ghosts   we are overwhelmed    our mouths full   our dead arms flailing failing    the sad hymn what is its name?

half way to knowing is a fixed state    as far as we are likely to get    I cannot change this silence     we come back to the concrete point   these events based on a real story   you  my only collaborator

in the business of fact    love’s raw statistics       the lies we normalise to each other    in bed Sunday morning    the children playing     war games in the next room
