James Walton #105 Twelve megawatts to evening




a fox so cruel

in its beautiful unmercy
where black swans

trawl beyond mine shaft warnings

a mob of grey roos
languid as a marinade

scratch at rear thighs

old gardeners resting
on a cushioning rake

the wind turbines

obelisks in need of a pharaoh
sift the sky for a language

only written in stone

at the end of the trail
all this thirsting water

the hospital helicopter

skims a stitching reverberation
on the mid-winter tide

this is a place to lie down

between shaking centuries
let something run away with me

into a chiaroscuro frame

  1. a turbine poem
    between reverberations
    languid as the wind
