fragments of an attempted writing.


'No need to apologise,'
says God to his conscience.

'Speak a little louder,' time says
to eternity, 'I am heavy of hearing.'

Are the machine and the tiger
related by more than a purr?

'The answer is at the back
of the mirror,' says Alice, 'where truth lies.'

- R.S. Thomas, Collected Later Poems 1988-2000.
