in the clear

~

in the clear  (  raelc eht ni  )





bubbles tickle tips of tongues

on a wander from the shop

sipping sups of ginger beer


underneath a swarming orb

in the pantaloons of noon

on a bridge, above the weir


toast the flow, the river roars

mud as blood & howls of brown

bucking beasts of water here


bucket off beneath the blue

satellites switch on the lights

sunward strings the puppeteer


in the dell - a knelling bell

baas upon a breeze's sneeze

tingles in the inner-ear


oceans groan as swallows swish

roses glow & phantoms dart

martens, hark & swift a gear


clouds unshroud & so an ode

or a sort of warbled hymn

in the clear of morning's blear


spiders climb the drains again

buttercup's the fuddled lane

puddles shrink - & disappear

...
