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

indefinable intros 3

the aphrodite of llaugharne

dusk’s gaping edge pulses skip beat skip

heart coiling sear of the migrained eye

debris of tide trapped tossing an empty car park

damp droplets decking a gingery sky

you never know she says

awakening inconclusion

the aphrodite of llaugharne
