stretches of you

cast in bronze and silver

forged by passions

unknown outside this house

unknown but to these walls

oh how I wish

everything could be

so different

but the coins have fallen

as they have

and I warm myself

by the fire

and not your breath

and body

Harris Coverley

Harris Coverley is a Rhysling-nominated poet, with verse most recently accepted for Star*Line, Spectral Realms, New Reader Magazine, Abandoned Library Press, Clover & White, and The Oddville Press, amongst others. He lives in Manchester, England.
