currently the side of your lip is draining a little

Presently you believe I should tell you

a past filled with fish

while the lake mists over?


In any case, don't you see

how thirst beats in the throat

of the reptiles on the squashed leaves


On the ground

pre-winter's dead hedgehogs

have plunged through the periwinkles.


Furthermore, you bite

the dry stalks:

currently the side of your lip is draining a little.

What's more, presently

you maintain that I should tell you

the historical backdrop of birds?

Be that as it may, in the intensity

of early afternoon, the wild cuckoo

flies alone.


Despite everything

the lost little dog wails among the briers:

maybe the narrows horse, running,

hit him with a dark foot

on his nose.
