Such a soft gaze dawns with a wonder
At how we’re drawing closer, like railway lines
Hoping the horizon holds the promise of touch

Inching closer, a sudden rash swing,
And the dry twig cracked beneath the rose,
Leaving only the beat of fleeing wings.

Destruction

Burn fiercer, fire
Raise your great waves
Crash your tide upon us
Drown us among your crests
Deluge is with flames of salt.

Crumble on waking, like buildings falling
As dream civilisations turn to dust

On the coffee table the remains of the day,
A tumbler of amber whisky, an ashtray,
Lazy wreaths of smoke rising calmly.

The last flame in her grey eyes glowed
Like the final light in the cigarette ash
Being stubbed out on the hard pavement.

By her wrong answers, his pedantic wounds to her pride,
With love.

In a bustling shopping mall parking lot,
She stoops to find her child’s pacifier,
Somehow lying by an abandoned trolley.

Affection

Your coat, warm, like the marshmallows
We toasted over the campfire
While you guarded us in the shadows.

Guilt

In a voice of ash he told the public
Why justice was violence, hatred, murder,
For those without conscience, only children.
