Source Code on Blackheath, London March 20th, 2015 – a poem by Jane R Rogers

Source Code on Blackheath, London March 20th, 2015  

Our skyline, once openhearted
is now shored-up
in your penumbral shadow

…………..suspended to only a likeness,
…………..brittle as toffee-candy.

Copying crows, alerted to life
at your second contact,
we find shine in flight, our scattered feathers

…………..settle, mysterious in the heath’s trees,
…………..we trust in our own coronas.

We make no caws in this unlit surround,
hemmed in, within your partiality,
instead borrow another world of minims and muscle,

…………..and measure this time as magnetic,
…………..collectable

in the obscurification of our source code,
find earth on Earth
in Moon on Sun.  Moving.
