The sea-wallThrown up after the horse had bolted,
grey with a curved lip on top like a whale's fluke,
Broken, pitted, sandy steps
Made of cement, ground up granite and pieces of tar.
Sand encroaches from the sea,
Inching up the wall by stealth
Until the base is lost in grit,
And the sea shifts silently below.
SpaceOur human shells conceal black holes
And overwhelming shadows grow.
We hide behind the ripples of dark matter
Amongst the clustered waves of light.
But still the cold expanses sing
An alluring song to the tethered planet
And shivering with delight our answering voids
Dance close to their abyssal partner.
ExecutionThe dusty roads snaked far beyong the fields
Where silver rice and muddy water dreamed.
Still numb, his mother's mind replayed him kneeled,
The guns now silent whilst a scarlet stream
Soon sank into the fertile earth congealed.
His silent body seemed to soak up sunshine beams.
She's driven east to lay him in his tomb,
The longest journey since he left her womb.
