Reuben Woolley




it’s cold outside & burning

worlds fall
you know


a sky a full
collection i made
& didn’t you sound
a sad & bitter i
said was there ever
a further mile or
other star

this is not
a final play
the oceans where
we hold the fibre

mother cells adapt
easy said da vinci
& rising a man all
geometrical & i
don’t know how to write
these broken words this cataract

& black

a space

i didn’t find

repeats come on say
repeat an end

an end

the end

bye bye
