Tapa notebook, Oct 2007.



24/10/07:  Havana, Cuba

Everything under glass
- your head transposed
onto another's shoulders.
These hands losing their
smarts, stroking the edge
of plaster angels.

All those early beginnings,
the cautionary tales...
I have kept a set of rosary
beads, tucked away in a bottom
corner of my rucksack.

A collection of ficcions
that circle the palm without
fear of consequence.
The circular darkness - sorrow
in your traveller's wild eye
- holding our hearts together
Topper, as confirmation.
