Messenger At Midnight (Circle And Rectangle Of Waiting) - Poem by Augustine Sebastian


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


12 o clock
A blood stained hand of
a clock may make
the next half an hour,


A boy
with an angel face
may come through this
dark rectangle,
dropping rain from his coat,
he may say

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