Anthony Wilson – Sunlight

Sunlight

            Enable us  ̶  Thom Gunn
…………for Peter Carpenter

Your eyrie

                       Tubular Bells
in the pre-lesson

………………………..silence

a first edition Moly
                               in plain view

A Clash ticket (torn)
…………………………..Jagger’s grin
……………………………nothing by Munch

Orwell’s blue plaque
……………………………above

…………………………….surveillance-cam

looks down
………………..at you

Emails (the chapel gown directive)
…………………………………………..-balls-

………………and Soft Machine prog
………………………..made yesterday
………………………..to confuse them

You pause
……………..to note
……………………….a magpie
……………………………………..cackling

now in mind
of that wag
…………………………….in row three

in love with bridges

who said

                            physics shouldn’t work

  2. This is quite lovely. A mobile composed of things radiant in time- fullness. I love the “metaxyturn” of “you pause” and the floating inward slowdown thereafter, down to the epiphany! There’s a sacrality that flows toward that moment of gently brimming laughter. Well, hard to describe! So very fine!
