‘small mirror’ at The Honest Ulsterman

small mirror

tree’s bole coldfoots the mire,
gathers to herself a small black mirror,
enclosing then, into her skin,
a stray leaf dereliction
(frozen /floating/ static)
she throws out an image of birds,
tree births a shatter of birds, eddying –
swooning into black air.
from bind
