..from OUR GEOGRAPHIES.. ‘The Naming’







Darkness draws down the curtain,
the liquid sky swirls into a shift,
coalesces to be made solid again

The backdrop to every dream creates
a breathing landscape; out of every
stone and tree, dog’s calling card

Enmities or alliances, stick or name
from earth’s clean dirt and mongrel
mouth that shouts the plan

Which shall be explained, but lifts
changed within the secret metamorphosis we live:
to rearrange verbs, and the sacred sentences
