XR – Poem

XR

ex[]i*t

                                    every day when

                  wireless telegraphy &

                                                      motorized sex

                                    shape/s

                                                      the air

                                                                        temp

& lack of

                  interfa[ce]

                                                      like these sho[r]es

                                    wear my feet

                                                      in summer melt

                                                                                          down

                  to earth

                                    my mind

in [the] raw matter[s]

                  of marble

                                    arch

                  paid a premium

                                    to INHERIT

                                                      this cemetery

                                    i carry

                                                      within

                                                                        sucking at

the flavour of fire

                  dissolved into

                                    the law.

fi[ss]ure/s of                                                                                                                              yggdrasil

                                                                                                            peel                          away [on] failing                                                                                                                              poetry’s ragged out                                                                                                                                                                  reach

                                                                                                to unstable stars

& this

emergent

solar] rebellion

striking

c[h]ords

                                                 to alchemise the                 [lack of]     water

                                                                                                      in mirror shades &

                                                                                   a big concrete smile w/

                                                                                                           radiosynchrasy

between [us]

Note: This poem is dedicated to the Hailsham XR Pilgrims who walked from Lewes to London to join Extinction Rebellion.  My love & gratitude to you all. Charlotte Still, Kevin Costello, Laura Jordan, Julie Ford.
