Flow
Lisa Kelly

you with your folding bike
you with your oxblood boots
bow tie, lakeside carrier
you with your baby on board
baby overboard
you with your valuables
your wedding ring
you with your safe harbour
you with your canvas
aquarelles, water lilies
you with your waterlogged lives
watertight lies
waterproof mascara
you with your bunch of migrants
crocodile smile
crocodile tears
you with what washed up
what washed out
you with your watershed moment
continental drift
you with your suspended load
plunge pool
raft of measures
you with your confluence
catchment, catchment area
war of attrition
meander
abrasion
bedload
base level
you yes
you

 

 

Lisa Kelly's pamphlet Bloodhound is published by Hearing Eye. She regularly hosts poetry events at the Torriano Meeting House, London and is studying for an MA in Creative Writing at Lancaster University.
