each birdlike reference
skyscrapers < the fiery snow

i can’t locate the map
or it locates me

easy to love
there is no night

rope-wire necromancy
inoculation kettle

stealthily introducing
away from its horizon •there is no night•

they dispatched us in the form of a postcard
all dressed for the dance

we travelled
all puffy with sunrises

this book is being eaten
this book has been cruel to itself

Fights XX- the Songs of Salvador Sánchez

Salvador Sanchez made his professional boxing debut at 16 years of age in 1975. He amassed a record of 44 wins in 46 fights, with one loss and one draw. After beating the best fighters of his generation, he is considered by many as one of the greatest featherweight boxers ever. He died in a car crash, aged just 23.

a. Aquamarine

Cloudy and uncut, dichroic,
clear and then you’re underwater
looking up.

Edith Sitwell dripped them,
however poor she got.
The jewel of origins,
diving in,
no fear of surfacing.

The Scavengers of London, Tom Watts

the scavengers of london - tom watts
extract

flood of buildings. London’s
many little streams & flatlands
after the conquest of Waterloo

the metropolis sacrificed
engulfed by fruit & vegetables
the marshiness of much

woodcock & snipe
five fields till the middle
decaying stalks of the flowering rush

by the osier pond. A common
bird along a small hillock
instead of through a sewer

they didn’t teach you to lie
it came to you as naturally
as a river falling down
they believed you
your lies acquired the kind of truth
films have, and memories
so even when you’re saying nothing
you’re still lying

Lot 30
a rare Wemyss ware powder box painted with fishing boats at dusk in yellow, red, pink and black, impressed mark, 9cm diameter

Dusk seeps through
the creak of masts and sails
into the stammer of the sea.

I watch silhouettes
stand up to be counted
from the silence-lashed shore.

Whispers of an old tune
idle in my head.
I am not one year older.

THERE ARE THINGS

There are things
I should probably say
to you and you
should probably say
to me that aren’t
anything to do
with this breath of smoke
I up and lose
in looking for the night
and this beginning or endpoint
of sky which sinks back
into the traffic-screech
of people on the street
going somewhere
to say something I think
I’d probably like to say

so much is true
mollified by fact

existence can be
always nearly so

just so

D

Drunk, swig wine
spread life on a rag
jumble in dank underpasses
upstairs bricked

Drunk, break chunks off
wind chill crumples
gutted, was substance
loveless crowds hurl at you

Scream back, you cannot
think that far

advice

Entitle a first collection “A mother’s
broad ruin, limey tap water.”
Make explicit your intention –
you are a relaxing gut – in fact,
all are a relaxing gut, perhaps
despotic.

Quit it, and take
up quilting instead.

Go to Wanstead
you once had a dream
about going to ‘The George’
there. In fact you’ve never
been there – except by now
it’s likely you’ve been there.
There’s simply no way to
be sure.
