Brian Lavelle | Scottish writer & sound artist

Untitled poem, 20 January 2023

tower between trees
under a growth of stillness
in near-blue

woodpecker’s hit-
or-miss punctuation
of the sentences
playing out in my head
unheard in offices
and factories and
houses beneath this hillside

the metal of the past
twists into a leaf-affirmed
present of trees

the branches soar
