soft creatures

the soft creatures come and
lift me in their arms,
without the walls of the poisonous world
sleep is sound.

dandelions explode and rise in my mind,
the long fields of summer
seem like ghosts now
as I plunder the winter
and its fruits.
the berries have sprung thick
on the holly tree.

I see a new sky on these nights
as it comes from the other side,
where some will live on
some will fade and die.

I am with you.

sheep are gathered at the top
in a clutch, together
for warmth. I see them breathing

I am with you.

scavengers have broken the fence,
all is set free and run amok.

there is silence,
the soft creatures come
and take me in their arms.
