DAY EIGHTY-THREE – Gerry Loose

Kali Yuga

 

therefore

in her left hands                                                                                      

she holds poverty
this is the place of sepulchres

she holds war
this is the place of abandon

she holds famine
this is the place of control

she holds belief
this is the place of terror

she holds greed
this is the place of scourge

 

in her right hands

she holds void
this is the circus of womb

she holds scrounge
this is the edge of roots

she holds austerity
this is the urban of leaves

she holds the blood inside
this is the birth of thunder

she holds contempt
this is the reach of tide

therefore

 

Gerry Loose is a poet, writer and activist living on a boat near Faslane nuclear submarine base. His most recent books are fault line (Vagabond Voices, 2014) and An Oakwoods Almanac (Shearsman, 2015). Other texts are also to be found in natural settings: bridges, botanic gardens and landscapes.
