Raspberry Canes

 

In and out the raspberry canes
“On a jack-frost bitten day:
With nothing more than twine,
and knife…
To earn my daily” pay.
Bending back the line of whips
From: “Lands-End to John o’ Groats”

These willowy viaduct sticks…
…Seemingly it will, never end.

In and out the raspberry canes
“With nothing burning on my mind:
Accept the numbing” hail and rain.
And the wisps of empty time
Bending branches a line of whips:
Beneath a solemn; grey stone-sky.
Under the derogatory east-wind
A hellishly loud purgatory cry
From: “Lands-End to John o’ Groats”
