Instructions for a Poem

Twelve months, twelve pieces of sky

A house with one door, a river always moving

A box of old watch parts, a dark star and its planets

Over the garden wall a woman's laughter, throaty, musical

An old sailing ship in a case, spiderweb for rigging

Ship's rigging, sub-atomic particles colliding

A box of old watch parts, time's river moving

A woman's laughter, twelve pieces of sky
