The Web Poetry Corner - M A Heathcote - Weight of love

Weight of love


M A Heathcote

His heart
Became a crumpled
Red poppy flower
A slip knot
Solipsism, thorn needle
An iron splintered
Slipped, anchor
On a day,
Night had set sail.
On a day,
A sun must strum,
The Soloist guitar
On a day,
Wraithlike waves pushed, on
Stringing under the noose
Ebony necklace of
Black beading clouds;
Skin-deep, whale-tanning,
Oilfields of crude tropic tears
Iris bursting blue bolts
Of abhorrent, hatred
Winging the eternal
Drum-fanning tarot cards
Shipwreck flames of pity
The dead feathered dreams
The meltdown, salt, soul
Albatross tar factory;
On a day,
The skies thoughts
Fall out of mind.
On a day,
Ribs churn like aching sandbars
With slivery icy memories
No longer gently shingled
Warmly washed ashore like jellyfish
Peacefully dying
Breathing starlight
But more like hermit crabs
Missing limbs
Is his shells heart
With its weight of love
