Atonement in a Moonlit Gutter
We were lying in the grass last night, someplace near the sea,
perhaps close to Salthill or further out, God only knows.
Martha Wainwright was singing from somewhere and you were
telling me a story about your latest project; how Seville smells
of oranges this time of year; your contentment; about all the
recent reasons you have discovered to keep you where you are.
The auburn glow in the sky was enough to inform us the city
was either close by or burning to the ground. Neither stirred us.
In the case of the latter I asked what you would like to save
from your house and you said the obvious answer would be
a little trinket handed down a generation or two, but in honesty,
let it burn. Let it burn to the ground and give you every reason
to start afresh. I smiled and brushed a spider from your jacket,
looking once again for atonement in your eyes, as I had done
in your sheets, in moonlit gutters along the canal where I had
prayed for a lenient wind to blow the cards clean from our
fingers; to reduce the odds to chance.
