Shiver

1-Shiver

Dangle in askew,

Teeter from the blotched trail-

Veering fragmented-

Cloaking looped in-

The corner scavenged.

Archaic in my jaundiced mind.

 

Play it back.

It’s teasing taut-

Dampened and rich,

Squeezing and strained.

Break in focus:

Shatter at once-

All of me.

Let me take flame.

See it again.

 

Pulse me into the echo-

Seek me,

Haunt out of myself-

Into you,

Rivers speckled shy

In my bairn eye.
