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

twin peaks aphrodite 07

twin peaks aphrodite 07



time stretch forward

time stretch back opening

making less the fear of slippery ice thinking

only now finding position

rememory of the fall

falling from grace

the graceful edge of aphrodite’s ego

now I see that nothing was ever said
