William Garvin



Four Poems


...a gesture through a windscreen in a

bloodless arrondissement. baying moon,

a playroom's slender orbits,

'to see you again without knowing...'


ф


...a disruption in the fabric; a rediscovered diary entry ('the face in the park belonged to her...'). Memories arise like possession: a stylish, if slightly run down part of the city; a plaintive song evoking one remembered as the dark angel. Outside, evening sun highlights rusting balconies, something lost in concert music reappears...


ф


she zones within the shoreline, incognito

at evening's clerestory, deep sea

regions, dark, anonymous sleep...


ф


notes for a fragile spring (extracts)


1. '...to sleep this starry surface she images herself primitive beneath modern centuries...

2. ...moon-marbled, skin like sea-washed stone

3. 'a coastal town in Europe, another curtain about to rise...



Two of William Garvin's poems appeared in Otoliths 28. Other poems & critical writings have appeared here & there...
