Dave Lewis Poems
Oh listen rain to the sound of her breathing, Don't tap so loud you might wake her. In the haze of this morning She's a shape like heaven.
A Kenyan Accident
Flamingo’s fly where she goes The jeep wheel spinning free Blue, blue orange sky Nakuru’s baked white pink.
The lino shiny dead cramped crocodile choked hand bread and dripping
Oh listen rain to the sound of her breathing,
Don't tap so loud you might wake her.
In the haze of this morning
She's a shape like heaven.
Don't shine so bright you might blind her,
Oh look at what you've done!
She stirs and turns her head,
Her hair is honey, sticky on my face.
