#Poem clusters

My god, there’s a tree!
and it’s running down the muddy lane
flapping, shaking
Bits are falling off
twigs, leaves, acorn-type berries
Now skeletal
dancing, writhing

Go back
add moon
add fingers of dark cloud
add war-time searchlights
hard shadows that bruise

Too long sat by the fire
Too much green smoke inhaled
Drowsy, it’s easy to burn
Inside falls out

Add stars
in clusters
stars, like solo, but clustered
as if lovers
lovers who burn logs and watch the unreal
15 moon-degrees per segment
lovers who break apart the hearth
take sunrise
into a new day
