deft     .      and manipulative

a rowboat (a punt?)
                                                     a make-weight

revellers calculate greed, an index
                                                                  of satisfaction

                   currents circle the prow,
                                                                  anvil-blue

stamped against the sun
                                                 the quest to find something

representative, something indicative is all I’m after

after all,   hops and grass

                                      the shallow pull of repetition

                                      slow
                       and mundane

                                        in the sparkling heat

                       shanked in the long grass
                                                     so that

 

you imagine that dust settles even on the water
