a meat mine

if you could just see me now,
hands pitted blood red
one clasped to my chest,
the other covering my wound..
base metal..

like some bag of skin

i felt for one moment that I could reach out to you,
that the sea in it's wisdom,
it's green blue wisdom
could for one impulsive moment cease it's spring tide

you're wasting my time

send my aching limbs towards your totem smile..
and that my bleeding might stop..
and that my wounds could heal

nobody has the decency to say anything

and that my arm could weld itself to yours

we dream together

people pour past me a wilting figure


I felt as if I could see leaves,
I could see summer leaves
that autumns wind had cast to the ground

give it up...

I felt as if I could sculpt time
but in one moment
this sweet clay turned to blood..
sea blood,

we sit in silence

i had hoped to sculpt a memory of you
sea memories,
of intense colours contained within a million sea stones..

spoon fed or watershed..

give it up..
and kill.
