Arrival

Lightfast interior

No black and white photograph

Just two of earth’s own.

Spring

Score pacts through red clay

Fingertip wavy ink trails

Gathering the prey.

Summer

Blood’s sudden distance

In the need for possession

Your disgust haunts me.

Autumn

Ceremonial

Leaves an absence of colour

Still unfastened day.

Departure

Fish, bird, skin held taut

Language, tribe, vast stretch of land

Between you and I.
