an elephant that grew leaves

the woman who is also an elephant
treads soft with her feet of cloud
a siren sounds bells ring a tree blows
over in the high winds

the woman who is also a wolf
snaps the necks of her children
readies herself
for some mythological defeat

in the waves a drum of her hands

in the drum a fridge
a cooker
a car
a broken door
the spinning wing parts
of a falling aircraft
she is no longer human
she lies in the heather
near the ruined house
on the moor


the grouse laughter

stones like converging men on the night skyline
