A poem by Tina Bass

 
 
 
  
 
Emmenogogue

on the edge of it
speaking softly she said
I do cohere you

he executed each sentence summarily

all things from egg
do you understand?
prostrate yourself
become lumpen mash upon hard ground

night-lights cut through 'lack of'
caution proceed with caution
observe incidentals
rules can be ignored

she was made for days like this
brittle cutting-cold summer
colouring bleeding smudges
blue-sky icing cloud-bubble
decoration

like a child
embracing the notion of morning
