Box

Diamond Jubilee
yesterday's bunting
sags and drips


could I be something
you'd say softly


a field of lambs
gambols free from
the telling of days


hidden in a box
the recipe for sunlight



Sheila Windsor 1,3 & Johannes S. H. Bjerg 2,4

Cracked Cup

cracked cup
in my second hand Bible
Genesis is missing


tiny skull, caked with earth
who were you


two butterflies
enter leave enter leave
through the window


Father still tapping
gone five years or more



Johannes S. H. Bjerg 1,3 & Sheila Windsor 2,4

Last Roses

a dragonfly
carries their colours away
the last roses


we have a skin for thorns
and one that holds the shadows


first day in pinstripe...
a copy of Les Fleurs du Mal
in his breast pocket


in the hum of tinnitus
one name comes and goes



Sheila Windsor 1,3 & Johannes S. H. Bjerg 2,4
