A propos „Chalk Hill Blue“: the opening poem of an instant classic of its kind

von: Manafonistas Filed under: Blog | TB | Comments off




My mother’s last days
were the end of a winter
that had become only
rolling blackout into blackout—
a time I had no hold on.
All news held a kind of dread
but ours, when it came,
felt like coming to.
A dimness in an old room,
a sense of certain things in absence.
Two sisters agreeing under the apple tree that the gathered speed
with which everything was being
done was just plain wrong.


poem: Will Burns

music: Hannah Peel
