Tags: distance love the earth

Something immense and lonely

Divides the earth between us this evening.

I have placed the photographs of you

In my inside jacket pocket

As every lover does perhaps,

A million miles and four nights out of touch.

I have cut up turf

At the back of my mother’s house

And have watched the way earth

Turns itself over like my restless sleep.

You understand double your years

My soul as it breaks surface

And I imagine the rich soil in your palms,

Would that it could be

Just the distance between us tonight.
