A Sort Of A Song


A Sort Of A Song
Saxifrage growing between rock, North Kent coast, England, 2013

Let the snake wait under
his weed
and the writing
be of words, slow and quick, sharp
to strike, quiet to wait,
—through metaphor to reconcile
the people and the stones.
Compose. (No ideas
but in things) Invent!
Saxifrage is my flower that splits
the rocks.
