Of these Recessionary Days
Low-hanging branches liked burdened shoulders, a displaced
bathtub in the middle of a frosted field, scattered bands of sheep
wandering aimlessly to the backdrop of a fragmentary commuter
housing estate – a testimony of these recessionary days glimpsed
all too frequently from an airport-bound bus of apostates.
And in these shadows of what was, you come to me on fire.
A slight vibration as a tram passes, a forlorn face in a cafe
window, syllables of this language slapping me with shadows
from the darkness I will not return to; the hardened hands of
January grappling remorselessly with our permeable skins,
impatiently waiting at crossings with bullet-proof suitcases.
And through this knife-like wind, you come to me on fire.
Discarded Christmas trees piled up high outside the church on
Lerchenfelder, the sudden sound of hard snow hitting off the
pavement from the roof of a five storey building; the first quarter
of the moon a sentry to the starry night sky like the half open eye
of God. My frozen midnight fingers fumbling with the keys.
And in this wraithlike stillness, you come to me on fire.
