Steven Taylor Two Poems
: Process

The words

Unmeasured, uncut

I appear yet
To be swinging, gently
On a winter’s afternoon
In a deserted park I’ve known
For donkey’s years

The nouns remind me of Zeppelins
Which I know to be impossible

There is a breeze, barely
Enough to flutter a ship’s flag

In a few moments the world
Will return to me by choice

It will be the strangest thing
Searching, please wait... animated waiting image
