Best Poem of Peter Black

The Natural World

This human world is fixed with chains and locks.
Children are told with their arms and legs clasped,
'Do not think of what is not sold or bought.'
As they are led from closed box to hot box,
Where the inner light has grown faded, gone
Out of the mystic; we forgot the songs
That put dancing into innocent feet,
Around tribal fires and roasting meat;
Now we chant dirges to the greedy gods,
Loving captives of interest and clocks.

But out past the city and sprawling ways,
Of powdered bricks and electricity,
Beyond the dead lands where forests were ...

Vinegar

What is this, this love it stinks
Of a long forgotten nether region
Which now bears the salty brunt,
Smelling of redundant seas.

O, Lord, I see
The heart shaped pulse
Beneath her burning breast
Which so longing tempts me.
