Poetry Map Poem 37: Edradour

31 Aug


for Rachel

Lay down a draft
watch it strengthen           colour

Offer up a body
reduce            to almost nothing

Lay down a word
its sweet              running water

Offer up a life
and its remains        your share


Mark Russell

from Pursued by Well-being (tall-lighthouse, 2013)
