this is the paradise to come

we were not lost

driving in the sun

windows down aircon gone

saw stone pillars edge of an estate

fighting bulls one per field

black in a golden haze

staring at the new thing


until we were gone

& somewhere overhead an eagle

hearing the skreeeeee high lonely

no clouds today not one

blue as far as the eye

distant mountains fuzzed

by the distance to come

where are we? are we lost?

you asked

who cares? I said

this is the paradise to come
