Or three


The feather spark of a woman

that favours you

on first occasion:


like an eyelash,

like creation.


She isn’t hit by your sickness.

She isn’t cut by your sins.

The blood flows safe and warm beneath the skin.


Enjoy, my brothers and sisters,

when sun, moon and holy whisper

go swinging off sycamore trees


and time is on our side

for a second or three.
