The Scientist

The scientist

Did you see us
back at the start?
born from the shattered dark
of waves at night

rising from the car crash
our fragments leaping
reforming in the air
starlings shrouding the sky

the windscreen of our eyes
frosted with fractures
feathering the brightness
of the returned to world

our thinned hearts
crisscrossed with cracks
blood loss through the chinks
slow us this time

holding hands again
considering each footstep
knowing no coming back
from the next collaspe

but this time
we’ll fall beside each other
we’ll fall to dust
swept together

sand in the tides
