Drawn, smoking

oil-shapes                                strum                       

 

rain threads                            light

elms                                            splinter

 

sky-shade                                 a

silver-grey                               shape    

 

curls                                            pale

                                                      nails

 

cut wet wood                          crescent

eyes, dark                                 snare

 

lonely

blackbirds                                singing

 

day-night-noon                     cold-eye

                                                                mute-wind

                                                      glass-man

                                                                        blues
