One Poem by Michael Caines

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

A Startle

A startle
of errant molecules
leaps this bottle

that, rated X,
has laced the air
with like effects,

crossing some birds,
bringing to light
those quadrupeds –

greyhound-ribbed, dark –
who shyly stalk
our no man’s land.

Two full horned eyes
observe such errancy
sideways.

 

Michael Caines lives in London, and has had poems published by Allegro Poetry, the New European and Visual Verse.
