Linda’s Phone Call

The night as wide
as a lion’s jaw
an open roar
of humour
in the humming dark

I care to have
the bright being
of your sing-song joy
your raving wayward words
the simple pleasure
of your musing moments.
Do I really lend light
to the dark chambers of your heart?

Your voice came looking
for a hand,
an arm or a shoulder
but only words
in the concert wires
a scribble of voices
no flood of blood
to bind you to the earth
and strengthen beneath your skin

Words are subsidiary
to your fingers holding the phone
and your ear pressed hard to the plastic
