Comments about Sarah Capella Smith
Comfortable Silence (21st January 2006)
The freezing wind rips raw through my skin.
The sand supports my heavy form
And I couldn’t wait to take the plunge.
My mind and body are at ease -
Because there’s nobody demanding an answer,
There’s no-one to answer back.
As comfortable as sleep.
The sea breaks like pages of poetry
And I drown peacefully between the sheets.
Here, it is like the Dust Bowl, a black hole,
Dreams snuffed from a candle with an exhuasted flame.
Blood beats like a curse, a strange fear -
The sheets! The sheets! Twice through. There are two
Eyes selling sanity to the stars.
Pretty and full of wishes they vanish.
Smiles in the dark, hot breath and heartbeats
Infuriate its ebony host, this opaque ghost, which
Unfolds from the wings of a furious magpie, itching for sleep.
