What Happens While We Are Sleeping

What Happens While We Are Sleeping

What Happens While We Are Sleeping

Frost. Foxes. Owl-kills.
The wheel of stars.
Thundering lorries with somewhere
to get to by dawn

Beads of dew forming
along the telegraph wires.
A red deer delicately eating
each closed tulip like a prayer.
