The Metre and Up, 11:19am

"I can see things that perhaps other people can't see".
Patrick Roper

Water, silk and ash.


Dear George,

I can see things;

the dividing contrast between light and shade,

the well-palped shadow of the wolf spider,

water and silk-spun titanium-gold amid the slate and grey of fallen ash.

Perhaps this sun can warm your back as well.
