song for A14

A face of stone found
elephantine

an engraving, a Romanian town
three flights up
above the bank – it splits
reveals lips
like you couldn’t imagine
bear a legend

tell us that
we don’t move
but that around us
rushes past

pushing hands
in flesh to leave
fingerprints
in paisley bruises
promise me
you’ll come home
