Not knowing

here you are with a name scraped
off the courtyard your grandfather tiled
a name your child answers
my name

out of place in your heart you make me

drink from the dark
well the remorse in your voice weights
the bucket whitening my knuckles
breaking my skin shaking my heart

free

mid 1993, Ely Street, Christchurch
