Near Effingham

Wind in the mane.

A thicket of music. Here is that

Lovely silk underwear green trout water,

A liver-spotted dog,

Horse breath and body steam,

Steaming urine in the grass, coarse

Grey mane in my face.

A farm breathes in my mouth..

The respectful bonfire’s voice:

Wet urine-soaked straw smoke.

Apple branch and vine trimming smoke.

You with me.

A moment’s happiness defiant.

My religion,

Pointillist again tonight.

Paul Anthony Hutchinson
