the slippery steps to phantom home,
a block of grey sky, a concrete tub, basement-size
rinsed of sodden bits and charred queries...
the back garden inviolate
concurs the temple steps, the dark mounting
wet and dense with winter's mulch...
last fall's fire
[*o cadoiro is the title of a book of poems by Erin MOURE, 2007... in Galician "o cadoiro " means the place where falling is made]
