Poetry Corner: ‘Long Ago On Differing Paths’

The Last Stand Of The Claw Relics (2015) by Nicholas Peart

 

Long ago on differing paths
by my torched chest and pierced side
black blood in high pressure jets
past the sacred bend
my love up on the endless roof
plateau smashing and attention grabbing
all rubbed to meet the grade
how we could talk in these tones
his sharp teeth boned-proof
in a silent faded space
nothing overgrown stands in our way
lathed light bolts potent;
great happiness clues
from me to you
