Distillation 

 

Bronze statue totem.

Granite stone plinth.

Brick lined market street rumours.

Archway corner, wrought iron fence.

Foundation pillar address.

Field-gun trophy, park bench.

"Good morning", passing by.

 

Scuffed leather splashes,

broadleaf tap-roots extend.

Intense watermill installation attend.

Cordite blast shots, island green sea.

Slate grey, ashen, storm drenched,

flood field patterns engrained.

 

Rooky congregations, gathering nests.

Twilight moon crescent phases.

Platoon ghost dancers,

viral fruit silhouettes.

 

Glistening scale migratory river.

Gravel-stream beds.

Waves breaking, skeletal carcass laps.

Mossy bank shore.

 

Twisted skyline.

Shadow wings beat,

merely possessed,

dissolve.
