Messenger at Midnight (circle and rectangle of waiting)


1

12 o clock
in a needle leap
the imperfect half of
the most perfect absurdity
is sabotaged.

/

12 o clock

a clock may make
the next half an hour,
bloody

2

A boy
with an angel face
may come through this
dark rectangle,
dropping rain from his coat,
he may say
no....







insp ired by Samuel Becket, especially his television play 'Ghost Trio'

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
