Bypass

They built a bypass
through the middle of the cemetery
and a few council offices
which they later sold as luxury apartments
but when it rains, bones stick up
through the floorboards
and skulls gargle like a choir from hell

Mr Jones, though, was relocated
100 yards away from his wife
Sometimes you can hear him calling out
to see if she's OK

Between you and him
I've sketched my own tarot pack
stepped back into shadows

I've curled in bloodwarm dampness
cling-filmed your sex-drenched body
invisible on the bathroom floor
flooded words, sucked lush fur
knocked the angular beast
into a muddy reflection
a piece of polished steel
incorporatedů
