Out of due season ww13 May 2012

These books are sentinel to my laziness
entombed in trying the ashes
of a long winter

aware of the weight of delirious giants
basaltic in the slanting grey of
a frigate bird chorus

high up above I recognised their feet
dodging the debris and slow
crystals of charcoal

I lost my words in the shards of a dream
of love, and other synonyms
for destruction
