Concrete Poem

Poem By Kate Fagan

The beginning of duration
The infinity of cells
The form of unknowing
The hopelessness of dropped article
The foot following the hand
The enticements of proclamations
The factual storm breaking between cables
The loss of a single throat
The particularities
The restaurant the satellite the city
The ambivalence of hours
The finity of care
The naming of difference
The reappearance of history
The violence in repetition in repeating
The repetition of ritual
The stealing of light
The floor as we cross it
The unanswerable question of occurrence
The leaves the rivers the glass the dust
The absolute relevance
The petal as it falls
The book as it falls
The capital returning
The centralisation of numbers
The face on ships and under fences
The domestic ear of infinite justice
The continuous event
The evening of a globe
The end of solid impossibility

A long shadow passes
over the garden. Yesterday
I buried the bones, feathers and skulls
of two magpies fallen
