Where is it exactly that you travel to
in your head?
I should like to have the grid reference,
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.
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
stronger and louder
the harder, the further
