CHRISTMAS LIGHTS IN JANUARY - Patrick Jones


rain beat my soul
empty me in
drizzling distances heart sedated
isolate
and dignify
us
tears
come to signify

a defiance
a shroud
a loss
a dolphinned silence
of unitnterrepted eloquence.

strung out like eyes
cold as worship
bleeding blood colour over sun denied streets
they
watch
they
wait
like Jesus upon Calvary

to be
dragged down
and put away
until
until

another
sense
of
belonging

occurs.

Happy new year
demand the impossible
another world is ours for the taking
