Savvy Poem – Towyn Trailer

img_20190809_200842

 

Towing my brain into Towyn,

aiming for something static

to keep my thoughts from

lagging behind my actions,

from drifting off and taking

on a form of their own

 

or, worse, from sprinting on

ahead of my slowing feet,

I take the long road, slicing

a cuboid city into two identical

halves, my brain kidding me –

teasing back the zipper that

holds this bag of plastic

together,

 

pulling it apart at the

seal, so that the road

in front of me splits, opens

out, making my feet panic,

step upon step, unable to

move forward

 

until, winning and elated, the

deep Earth takes me down,

reclaiming whatever it is in me that

crossed over to set foot upon                               Salopian soil

all those lives ago.
