Your world,
the stuff of dreams,
that soft collision
of gently worn ghosts
and the fraying edges
of summer nights,
pools under the sky
like the backwater of heaven.

Rifts of melodies,
caught round your fingers,
court and spark
the softest demons -
full of poetry
and sweet oaths;
and dark stars,
bright as crickets,
glister with agate
against the window.

You wear me
like linen and cloves,
fine smoke from storms
and the echo of midnight,
caught under your spell.
For Victoria

Rifts of melodies,
caught round your fingers,

the softest demons -
full of poetry
and sweet oaths;


loved the sound-experience of this.

I like to play with sound. Sometimes i get caught in a battle of sound versus images...

Your words seem restlessly to seek ever more seductive formulations, Brendan!

I am a bit smitten by magic it would seem.

You have magic in your veins, Brendan. (Or is it brains?)
