Robbie Coburn


Nothing here nothing changed
in the familiar columns of

no shadow approaching in the morning light.
not you or anyone else.

not the greyed street corridors
the pulse of breath cowering
on the footpath and moving

across the whitening sky.
you could be anyone

no body or tongue caught
on a final word.
