In the morning

In the morning

at day’s end
when the sun whispers
slags of song turning clear
darken as they cool
on the floor of the forge
a shy snail seeds its eyes
to taste the air
scribbles a rough heart

in the morning
you stand within it
watching the sun
tear itself apart
as the kettle gurgles
clears its throat
