1.12.13 ~ Andrew Taylor


So you are still
alive
tears float
coffee grows cold
rings appear
on unpolished tables
it is not right
to list grievances
Eilean Shona
spring sun
May 1989
splendid isolation
deer at dusk
cold enough to
light the stove
longer sunset
take the boat
coastal train
revisit the burn
play the soundtrack
compile a playlist
'Please Rain Fall'
'Blue Light'
'If You Need Someone'
plastic wrapped in card
pressing plant messages
enamel coffee pot
hand grinder
coal delivery
thick Sunday paper
polished parquet floor
hire car
'A' roads
launderette smells
warmth
North park
three banks
tabac lunch
steamed up windows
soup
booths
so you are still
alive
laburnum arch
coffee grows cold
the tears
again
all about apologies
the shadow
of death
watches over us
stone circle St Tysilio's
church island
tunnels engineered
through rock
Snowdon Buffet Bar
rushed platforms
moss
so you are still
alive
tears float through
the hanging crystal
