Paper. Porous. Stone.
A game to while away the time while
elsewhere is in natural surroundings.
A cell shelters daydreaming
the smallest living unit
of all life forms.
ta ta ta
falls the rain
here, to be collected, made into a bath
or a rite of passage.
Wrapped in a blanket that carries Some Body’s touch,
a dream of temporal sleep unfolds
and the limbs are embroidered with fragmentary splendour.
Rain is made of
the same substance as
dream-sweaty scattered hair
And history seeps into the ground like
A spill of your vigour –
