At Ease

Most wounds can Time repair;
But some are mortal  – these:
For a broken heart there is no balm,

No cure for a heart at ease –
At ease, but cold as stone,
Though the intellect spin on,
And the feat and practiced face may show

Nought of the life that is gone;
But smiles, as by habit taught;
And sighs, as by custom led;

And the soul within is safe from damnation,
Since it is dead.
Walter de la Mare

My window-sill is level with the faces in the street.
Drifting past, drifting past,
To the beat of weary feet.
While I sorrow for the owners of those faces in the street.

Faces in the Street

BOXING DAY 028

 

it’s warm beer and cold hands;
it’s leaning back into cigarettes and noise;
it’s the vague concentration of the fourth drink;
it is the alcoholic headache of the sun;
it’s someone whose name you can’t remember;
it’s the red esky suddenly full of a tidal water.
And when I can’t drink any more, it’s ………..

DRAGON BOATS 022

Come all young men and maidens, do bad company forsake,
If tongue can tell our overthrow, it would make your heart to ache;
You girls, I pray, be ruled by me, your wicked ways give o’er,
For fear, like us, you spend your days upon Van Diemen’s shore.

SEPT HOLIDAYS 229

She dredges
in mixed minds at a quarry-mount of muddle:
where to dump, where gouge, whether
to abandon the site to flood,
worked faces flayed
with rubble in the flurry

About this woman.
