about

Out on these grey winter beaches, out on my edges
(We all have our peripheries)
Out here they drowned while I watched them, and when the tide washed them in
They all looked like me, and you

I’m lonely down here
I’m hardly alone
I’ve gathered you all up in my basket bones

I emptied their lungs and their pockets, and oh how I treasured
The treasures I found
Cigarette butts, sea buckthorn and ivy, and evidence
I thought long-lost in the sound

I’m lonely down here
I’m hardly alone
I’ve gathered you all up in my basket bones

There was a time when I could not have
Conceived of an ending like this one
But this country, oh this country
Has its ineluctable sums …

Threnodies whispered at windows were callous
And quietly carried away
And oh, how I’d wait for your phone call, and oh how I’d buckle then
Under its weight
