It is two l’s standing side by side
And they are held into a circle
The circle is open ended –
Dot dot dot . . .
Now it is spring ;
I walk, and circle, and gather –
I gather seeds of barley, seeds of datura, seeds of mustard –
I pick nettle sprouts and pieces of wood –
I see black and white on the vegetable patch
The black of the compost and the white of young weeds, arriving.
Assemble, disassemble, reassemble,
Colour, play, stop, photograph –
A temporary portrait of the land
