broken
wine vessel 
the
waterfalls
divide 
and the yew trees
black madonna
she 
statued, greek
with her heels 
the moon breathes 
prayers, her
rotten pomegranate 
pierced with seed
to eat
teaching, reach
like shadows across leaves 
bending, blending
ears
pressed, eyes
her church
the streets, the
storm
our black mother
madonna
of soil and the sore
take us in your hands
mama
to slaughter
like little red lambs
all spilt
you haunt, adore
the nightingale 
your 
daughters sing,
black madonna ...

the waters are so cold
when summer never ends
beside riverbank
like mannequins buried in sand

statues watch the 
fishes flash 
streams of coloured flags
as kingfishers

butcher finches
and midday storms
grow black
the wind smoothens

flattens the daisies, the bodies
pressed
so hard like lovers
the mouth opening

and salts spilled into sea
like the crack
of broken shells
and the whistling of words

not meant for me.
