A walk along the sky (unfinished?)

A walk along the sky

There were Venn diagrams in the puddles.

A bird lies on the grass.

Where did you go, little worm?

Where were you going?

Where are you now?

 

Strewn across the tarmac,

Strewn across the sky.

 

A bird lay in the grass.

Curled like wallpaper,

peeling at the edges.

Fading like wallpaper:

The end of a song.

 

Won’t you sing again?

 

A bird laid with the grass.

 

The soil is soaked,

sunk

sunken

 

A bird sinks into the grass

A bird sank into the grass

The bird sunk into the grass.

Where did you go?

Where were you going?

 

Won’t you sing again?

  1. Persona of a child? trying to make sense of death? Life is the coming and going of living? Very evocative. Needs lots of revision, tightening, polishing the diamond it could become because it has a crystal core.
