Work In Progress: Night And The City

I posted this a few weeks ago on my poetry blog, stating that I know that there’s parts of it that I’ll change, but it’s of interest to record the first birthing lines.

I’ve since deleted the opening three lines, it now begins:

the hulls and husks

of scuttled ships

shadow the sky

I’ve tweaked a few others lines and added much more.

I’ve also renamed it Rooftop Blues. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Railway Platform

Coronets For Ghosts

Railway Platform

A guitar case on a 
       windswept platform

the marbled leather
       beaded with rain.

The echoes of long
       goodbyes

and illicit, erotic
       trysts 

may reveal themselves
       in song.



Stirring below the 
       frenzied poplars

new saplings unfurl
       an elastic desire

having dreamt
       in darkness

of taut, lofty
       bowers,

crowning coronets
       for ghosts.
