& janus yawns  (  snway sunaj &  )






& janus yawns - begin again

with spinning plates & figure eights

a sort of door, a nu-refrain


a blooming moon, a winter rose

a glimmer of a tinsel tree

a morning frost, a cockerel crows


an even morn, the sky is red

a mumbling of tumbleweed

& man aliver - december's dead


a stopping clock, a ticking list

the underlings of over there

the phantom hands of river mist


a sliding scale, a slither's snail

a scatter graph, a swivel chair

a dog in fog, a twisting tale


the ups & downs of roundabouts

a parsnip in a silver birch

& hark, a parp of brussel sprouts


the air is pins, a drop of snow

within the still - a village snores

& there beneath the mistletoe


the brambles scratch, the gloaming dawns

a groan of bones & so we sing

the song of swans - & janus yawns
