things have changed

poem again

I rediscovered this in a sketch book, not where I usually write but it felt good enough to be revised and now it says something more I hope!

the poet places words
ending lines
just so
meanings are
not as clear cut
only average hostility
a heart beats triple time
cut done
for a whole generation
skined over

the painter swirls colour
past line ending
we pre tend lines
hide with in space
twirl twizzle leap
dot dash con-trast
end and be
physical marks
stilled complexity
perplexingly assertive

I've moved over
