Like a Peach

You were so close
I'd hear you breathe
like a peach, swim through you
like plasticine, nothing

They say forever will endure
hold out
no matter how much you carry

Never too much for one alone
Never too much to get through the hours
forget, go under, break sleep
into somewhere
anywhere

Pastoral Stuff

I firmly visualise
an iconic grey seal
basking,
then wrangle with the alignment
of my steel girder skeletal structure,
eventually, gratefully,
reaching a well-negotiated compromise

And now the dream...

Obscurity and Profundity
are selected via Authority

That's it
time to go home
