A finger a light touching the Kilbrannan Sound, with Kintyre in the background

Kintyre
Alexandra Ekkelenkamp

in these days I rise
rise
with crows
dawn on their feathers
screeching
copper on metal throats
cutting through clouds
awakening
awakening the grey sun
whilst I rise
rise
painted wrists flapping
catching air between fingers
dropping Memory
into an ornate lake

Alexandra Ekkelenkamp (1999)
