The Biography of Birds (2010)

There are stars
in her soul,
if only of human construction,
with large,
quiet, brown eyes.
A portrait of the
where she
ought to be.

Prophecy/tess (2009, rev 2010)

Prophecy and the prophetess
whose lips close around
scalding words,
holding the inevitable
at bay.

Underground Station (2009, rev 2010)

They find you like the emblems you find in memories:
Faded, gritty.
No sound, no colour; only silence, only shadows.
Run your hand along an escalator handrail
and get drawn into a different, darker Hammersmith.
Overwrought by the iron giants of memory,
yet gilded by unexpected laugher; shining,
between the fading pages of the past.
Fingers trail on, along cool glass, cool metal, cool stone;
along silent questions, pleas, entreaties, evocations.
Remember? They ask.
Remember the girl clutching fading sun flowers?
Forget, forget the rest.
