Milner Place at the Humber Mouth 2007 | Photo by Maggie Hannan

naked invitation

steal that hour
when all the trappings
of a world
are pit-cast

lie
naked
harboured
in a skin

let loose
the nearest thing
to truth
with swivelling eyes

quiet sit

seeking no lies
amongst stars somnolent
that stretch
across the wind

and of their raging
be assured

naked invitation
