She Walks Away


She walks away receding
A framed hardship
Once she chased boys
A child's different corridor
A mind alive then
The moment is grasped
As step by step
Today is no more

Today a gloved hand
Blue against the softness
Caressed her breast flesh
As the pink yielded
This way that way
To a palpable neutrality
Until there just there
A lump has appeared

Today is already yesterday
As step by step
To tomorrow ah tomorrow
The grip loses moment
Revelations will stream on
Chasing a lost appearance
Still walking away receding
With her own spectre

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
