One Sublime Poem by GJ Hart


The Window


A break from climbing

oceans And brick dust -

I sit at my window looking -

my garden small but large

for London, the grey

tigered fence and behind,

window upon window

like mine -


oh what a time

sounds grand - back then

it ebbed and half

seen, nudged at my hull

or drew my neck with one

thin finger - now perfection's

a crime, I lock each day

to lose the key -


and here In London's

furrows, beneath the plane's

white hair - I'll keep my

mouth shut, darken

old words, wishing i'd never

given way to oncoming life -


and one day when I must

spread wings in any bed

of flowers and the pain

of best efforts ebbs,

I will drink my atoms

like any poison and forget 

there once was time.
