Disembalmed


Picked myself up from the concrete floor,
Skin grazed and raw, Knees weak
Shadowed surroundings echoed whispers of confusion.

Amongst the pines that pricked my careless hands
I stumbled head first into arms
Unforeseen and warm.
Shackled ankles came loose.

Rose up from a grave shallow and cold
Tongue untied,
Jaw slackened
you taught me to spit words that came tangled in thought.

Skeletons entwined without conflict.
My body became a vessel for
Adoration.
Seeped through every pore,
soaking my dress.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
