score (for an evening)

Inspired by the phrase When the evening is spread out against the sky taken from ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’ by T. S. Eliot.

This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

walk with me

let us stroll
in our coats
with the deep pockets

so that
when I take your hand
there will be room
for two

we will push . . .

gently push

a hole
into the gathering grey
a moment
when the horizon opens

and the evening
spreads itself
against the sky

the sunlight’s
last rays
coloured red

and shaded pink

will linger long
into the twilight

your hand
and mine
will share a pocket

our steps matched so
for length
of stride

woollen caps
pulled down
over our ears
to keep them warm

my breath
and yours
will write the score
of an evening song

to rise
into the night
