Light Travel

Random musings on how light might travel between people, or how two people might energise light, musings really…


We’ve been flying from star to star

Shunting between walls, light driven

Luminous, fragile, disintegrating


You have outshone the room

We are contained by matter

Material, we are poor

With too much money

travel from limit to limit

shuttlecock between places


bulbs leak from ceilings

drained, the carpet bubbles beneath us

ignites slick as a match’s rasp

struck hard as a breath, a lung’s gasp

we burnt this, it smoulders.


All smoked out, the fumes get to you first

We bake in an oven hot as Madrid.
