Weeds grow where they want to; not where they're told to...

TWO chaps from Gillian Prew

DISCONNECTED #1

 

No tragedy: the tracks,

squirming in the rage of

chronic difficulty, nor the hell

of occupancy, truth

of an indefinite existence.

 

Understand the howl of the flesh

cramped in this half-cured trauma.

 

Flat, lungless: all is image,  

else it is forgotten

like most memories, and remembrance

mostly a betrayal anyway.

 

I want like an unadorned finger

with poetry in the fist too heavy

to be born, and to love

properly without the hellish command of war

where every word hurtles to a wound.

 

I want the sun

to exhibit herself

more humanely:

forgive; or me

refine my hostility.

spring sketch with small corpse

 

the world dilates –

                         thickens       fat reds

flower the landscape –

                        clotted menses

               staining the green

 

a bruise of bluebells

                        sorrows

amid a frizz of fern

 

             gorse flashes its golds

 

         in the velvet mud

bloods and blacks            cotton-bud bones –

 

the silence of a blackbird’s throat

 

                   breathless

 

in the act of their blooming

          wild poppies unfurl

                   sun-coloured

 

a sea-scent drifts in on the breeze

 

a fist of cloud/

           gulls with oil in their blood
