Dru

Dru
 

Supper was a spicy affair;
cocooned in cardamom and chilli,
the newness of us flickering
against old stone walls.
 

The black dog slept,
woolly head on its master’s lap,
as Jack’s shape-shifting melodies
softened our edges.
 

Dusk danced at the door
as you led me outside,
draped your arm around my shoulders
and kissed me as the sky caught fire.

Up on the Roof


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Diurnal curtain falls as Belenus
takes a bow, casting angled
shadows on slated gambrel.
 

Dusk deep-toes rusty gutters;
twilight’s precipitous bluff
sloughed in pulpous moss.
 

Calignosity clings to the ridge,
rinsing secrets in rainwater,
awaiting incandescent resurrection.
