Trunk Dream

Ulli McCarthy

                            half bred upon mountain


                                hawk walk is wound

                                    by scree


                       bottle fed from beak

                    lure of feathers

                           wide wingspan gate

                                     bracken deep


                             red flame proof carpet


                                    shreds a night world


                         the market place pedigree


                               grand dragon

                                     leaving the time

                        scale & file


                  along car tail beam



                               of breath

                       head above city

            spreading broken glass

                                     roar moat


                       we slide down peat bunker




                                your hands


                           being open


                              enter lamb


                      hot spring




               dual blade grass

From Strange Faeces 15 (1974)
