Poetry

On Reading Robert Fisk

Lately I have not slept that well

particularly when books and TV

echo the dark logic of Hell.

Yet a woman walking through a field

found a severed head face down

in mud. She picked it up, turned

it over, and gently placed it down again,

offering him the dignity of sunlight

and a vision of the broad, open sky.
