Poems from Nightwork

 




Three-quarter catís eye

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† moon

through smoke:

††††††††††††††††††††††† ††† cul-de-sac

 

the dull round

night like another

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† blinking.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sleep in the limbs

††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††still working

the legsí rhythm

lulla-lulla-

†††††††††††††† by the road

 

rest comes lolling

by the main road.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rain frothing up

†††††††††††††††††††††††† the road

 

everywhere the air lightens

and the body

†††††††††††††††††††† moving heavy

through it.
