crunching ( gnihcnurc )


crunching in a wood

scrunching on this crackered land’s

kitchen sinking sand


trudging with aplomb

like the fading autumn sprite

as the footpath twigs


so the thicket thins

saturn spins – a goblin sings

this is easter’s ghost


& the carpet glows

marbles, me & barking trees

branches leaf a trace


numbered blow the bones

wafer thin biscuits fading

embers of a then


sound is bouncing round

sun above but yonder ground

eggshells & cornflakes
