The Line

The London Magazine - - NEWS - Fiona Samp­son

White trunks di­vide the dark be­side the line and in the dusk trees pause

since if they do not move they can­not see them­selves or know this mo­ment has to end

that stretches out be­side the line as held breath pro­longs it­self by hold­ing still

be­cause we do not want the day to end be­cause to stay like this brings the dusk close

to us as we are close touch­ing not touch­ing to­gether in the long dark.
