the city in your limbs     avenue of plane trees bare      of leaves shaking in the nervous    wind sharp shift and edge    the rhythm refuting sleep

last whispers of fog     accidents drape the swaying rimu    tripped of substance   breathing in the flecks

yours a wild weather   navigator’s compass    my north and my south    scaling the night’s face    disappearing  at the stroke
