The Lay of the Land ~ Andrew Taylor


Instructions have been left
take me back to where my heart
belongs

fields shorn within the day
bales are removed
soil finally rests

procession through landscape
a pace amplified against that of
the narrow boat

a house beams exposed tip
of the hill hedgerow borders
map precursors

Saplings plastic guarded
a future generation’s guidance
system


Andrew Taylor is a Liverpool poet and co-editor of erbacce and erbacce-press. His latest collection is Make Some Noise (Original Plus) and an e-book is forthcoming from Differentia Press.
