Poem: After the Quarrel

drowning in air

this night is groaning for your touch

hopes lost in half-light –

the censure of the doorway

remembered murmurs

and sweated

sheets where you are not


softly down creaking stairs, inching

past the clock’s impassive tick

over the threshold, feeling

the rough sympathy of

the garden path


no freedom is out here

lying on darkness and damp grass

I find only

your absence, and the stars



Emily Lock
