National Poetry Anthology

‘I Know’ – published

ISBN 1-84436-336-8

Entered and chosen for this anthology. A lament for the impossibility of writing about love?

I know

the inside out of walking on dry
earth and stones millennia
back to where lava ran and rock split
into a gorge of water
falling

to the ritual pattern of bricks red
and black mortar binding
buildings that shadow the cobbles
away from the sun
watching

high above the gulls wheel
on blue air shrilling
out pitiless grief
while below
light folds water into pleats.

Fools promise poems about love.
