Editor's Note




by Patrick Williamson

Whirl, leaves, see
the old trunk, the other

side, eyeholes
barely wide, light

licking up the rough,
a springboard shot out

to hallow weld, the
fallen wood cruxes

dug into dark green
nothing but bark,

hard to the sap -

the other
side, ditch,

scurrying woodlice
soulless scrub
some-one else's pile.
