No Earthly Estate
nearing the end point
of the year, pointless really
feeling approximately nowhere now
your cold body knows no earthly
estate and dust is blown to oblivion
South from Granada
Two women dancing
I can’t stay long
Heat and dust blow South.
From Granada, the fiestas
are on fire and two women
dancing together mesmerise.
I can’t stay – though your guitar
touches such longings

Björn ask us to search amongst our book spine titles for some Found Poetry - with and without elaboration. I chose two as the prompt was so enjoyable.
