Notional

She will wake with a map and a passport, yawning
before the calluses on your left hand finish
off the cleft where sky takes, making her
moan with the notion of belonging

elsewhere. She stirs with the birch –
you can imagine that tree as no tree
is: the emptiness between
branches where your history ought to be.

1–3.1.1995, Hokitika
