Walking Steadily Away …


That coming-in tide –

Be it blood, memory or saltwater –

Cannot always be friendly:

It knows nothing, after all,

Of shape, history or consequence.

We all know what we believe

To be true by the things

We decide not to let in…


… and that long-legged figure,

Distinct black on the

Grey road slope,

Walking steadily away …

Into fog’s womb

Where there are no borders…


…do you know him?
