Stalagmite and stalactite

Stalagmite and stalactite For hundreds of thousands of yearsI've been rising towards youmy body made from your slow rainone day we'll sparkin the shared darkas the tips of our tongues touchat the centre of the cavelike Michelangelos famous fingerssuspended in the skyof the Sistine chapel


You 1.Silt my veins with sunlight deposit daylight in my bones2.Dragged sunlight like a peltinto the roomor were you dusted in it?trickling sporesin the darkening airclosing behind you3.Made the sea go silentas you walked bytamed sunlight to a tailthat poured from the back of your head


Limestone Undisturbed unobserved in the darkbecomes clouded with the stillnessof its swallowed stormsmetamorphose absence into memory the plume of a flamepreserved within a marbleMichelangelo sensed your firein the dowsing rod of his chisel


Skylarks A chandeliershivers in the sewerin the belly of a whaleghosts of skylarkscrowd its stemstheir phantom songsdrip in the darktiny fields sprout from the splasheswhisperto the unseen abandoned sky


Movements Your movementsgave our house a heartbeatyour dance stepssmeared across the flooryour absencecrackles like staticyour silenceblooms within the wallsthe breathing of moths

Crow, Swan, Magpie
