from BARDO

The stars are in our belly; the Milky Way our umbilicus.

Is it a consolation that the stuff of which we’re made

is star-stuff too?

– That wherever you go you can never fully disappear –

dispersal only: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen.

Tree, rain, coal, glow-worm, horse, gnat, rock.

megalith sutra

clouds play the standing stones
in swift key-changes

stone row points the way –
stone circle says nowhere to go
but here

(in Bardo, Roselle Angwin, Shearsman May 2011)
