sight for jigsaw eyes


sight for jigsaw eyes ( seye wasgij rof thgis )

three treecreepers

up a silver birch

      six missed calls

      on a walk in the mist

forms on the water

but nothing underneath

      by the blanks of the river

      on a paper plane day

lights in the sky

like a lantern in flight

      is this a crack

      as a schism of a vision?

farthings on footpaths

gravel in shoes

      screamers in the supermarket

      munch on his lunch break

muzzled masses gasping

cattle on the loose

      a goosegrass rash

      in the shape of a goose

deer in the village

nearer than before

      roe does roaming

      on reconnaissance missions
