Tom Raworth


now the pink stripes, the books, the clothes you wear
in the eaves of houses I ask whose land it is

an orange the size of a melon rolling slowly across the field
where I sit at the centre in an upright coffin of five panes of

there is no air            the sun shines
and under me you've planted a quick growing cactus
