Glow

‘Now reach across the dark’
		     — Roy Fisher

There is a certain way of talking
about light globes.
	I will write
a big poem
one day.

	Reflection
encounters reflection:
the window, the dusk,
bats flying out of
the mirror.

	The desire
to make it more
than it is.

There are prizes
for this —
