limpets and cuticles
dele

watch the tide, love
 1
cat’s paws and seals
 2
out to the headland
 3
the slump and the fault
 4
 
 
floods upon floods
 5
glossopteris and tears
 6
the soft clay yields
 7
to the knife, to the touch
 8
 
 
a million years a metre
 9
fresh with annelids and reason
 10
cut to the quick
 11
four years deep
 12

and the rain never started and the wind fought the sea and the cliffs slowly crumbled and your smile is all I remember
(and the limpets)
