When your feet don't remember neither will you

In pigpen water driven from the forest by hooves and small hooves and seeds that sprout

the river rush through me I float tumble into dark

wake from nothing wet

As rare earth metal in air and carbon from the arse-end of a bus I drink heavy diesel

like a good cocktail it succumbs blacks my lungs

I return again more

I dream sandpaper floors in heavy grit I walk coals smouldering like challenges

but all the buildings continue to lie subdue straightjacket rules

marble brings amnesia polished concrete apathy

Take off my shoes laces hold me in death's embrace I know there's no time

soon it will be smooth perfect welcome I'll hate it while I love it

it will never love me back

back to top

AN Grace
