Chris Brown


a Sunday morning still

If you get inspired...
           make the bed
    poems roll out
           like a sea
         of altostratus
           of hokitika
             a glacier
     an inch at least
   there are photos
       to prove what
       can’t be seen
         these looking
      like time
     when you get
         to the end
           of anything -
         you stop
           and think
        that things
      stay truly still at all
          can only be
       an illusion



Chris Brown lives in Newcastle. He is writing a collection of poems called ‘hotel universo’.
