DALEY-WARD, Yrsa


Where is it exactly that you travel to

in your head?

I should like to have the grid reference,

the co-ordinates.

I want to man all of the traffic that gets lost

up there and guide it

so that it all goes the right way.

I want to build large roads right through

into the deepest valleys of your mind.

Wide lanes so you never get stuck too far away

For too long. Smooth tarmac and clear signs,

all of them leading around and around

and then back to me.

and anyway,

there will always be your breath

which, hard as you try,

you can’t do without

you can’t run away from.

There will always your heart

beating

stronger and louder

the harder, the further

you run.”
