Pursuit #8




dead not dead
    were flitting about me
day was not
    bats were flitting about me
day was while bats were flitting about me
    sang while bats were flitting
blackbirds sang while bats and blackbirds sang
    while robins and blackbirds sang
fleeces,  robins and blackbirds
    golden fleeces,  robins and of golden fleeces
robins, flocks of golden fleeces
    like flocks of golden –
were like flocks of bushes
    were like flocks
the compact gorse bushes
    were like the slopes
the compact gorse bushes were of the slopes
    the compact gorse bushes
some of the slopes
    the compact gorse
on some of the slopes
    and still on some of departing
and still on some slowly departing
    and still on was slowly departing
and still the light was slowly departing
    hillsides, the light was slowly
steep hillsides
    the light was and steep hillsides
the light, trees and steep hillsides of trees
    and steep, the shadows of trees
and in the shadows of trees I floated
    in the shadows of I floated
in the shadows I floated in I floated
