Common Sage



July 1st, 2011 · No Comments · Medicinal Plants Poetry Project

Salvage knowledge once and again
of burnt-breath movement –
cast no backward glance.
 
At the death of burden
the pulse stops feeding
and succumbs to
communal rhythm.
 
Sated smoke will clear
leaving blood
divine and
antiseptic.
 
 
Chris Page & Jon K. Shaw
(From Herbarium, a new poetry anthology. Launch and reading 22 July)
