aphrodite of the red bog

after the torrent

Aphrodite of the Red Bog

after the torrent

he was still there

with his Aphrodite of the red bog

same song sheet spread over sky kissed hectares

in breath breathing bronze breast of earth curve

curl of sedge frothy wave at the lazy lochlets murmuring edge

shoring herself to herself

undoing time
