Peace Div­i­dend

The London Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Pale trunks on a shad­owy em­bank­ment where this evening’s trees have paused −

if they don’t move they won’t feel them­selves or sense the mo­ment has to end

it stretches all down the line the way a breath pro­longs it­self by be­ing held

when we don’t want the day to close when stay­ing like this brings the night near

to us as we are near touch­ing not touch­ing to­gether in the long dusk
