Coat Peg World

(in memory E.E.Cummings)
 
looking out
from a coat peg world
beauty makes a face
wash away
in the wake
of a traveller’s tale
between noise
and that quiet state
there’s no time
no fix…
for memory
dissolve, withhold, alienate
make a secret and cancel it
i say no world
it for you
person you are was
that is another
space
(this is all)
vows
made in an old mind
youn…g as is
tying knots
in shoes
below the peg
(wee
ping
land away. a-lone
ly)
