Rookie - 161 Points (13-4-1948 / swansea)

From The Notices - Poem by michael oliver


Two squirrels - stop their retreat - test danger
A claw - the whole tensions suspends - about
A single eye - about - a single eye
The point of the poised body - looks

I cannot see you - I am invisible
With my clinging - I am the hiding
The tree is all I need - see
My green bark - it's rough provision - suffices


Image idled through the work place window
Bright green - hop and hop - a Magpie
Sunshine glare sleekly flicked from its tail
Reflects - occupations - tied - by a flashing ray


A clatter of sparrows shout in conflict
Flying hormones - woven -rattle in the branches
Stop! - Stop! Just stop! - tangled in screams
The chaos of creation - continues in thorns
