Allowing Joy - Poem by Shaun McGurgan

The spiritless metronome
laid its heavy syllables
on the contours of my life

Frost veined and muddy on fertile loam
To pause after a long struggle
gulping for fly blown air

Instead I lie in trembling grass
And allow the sunshine to scythe bitterness
and unsheathe joy
