Mountaineer

He had spent so many useless hours with others.
-----------------------------------Ingeborg Bachmann

I see flowers
in dead space
where banana’s grow
thirty five late nights
clouds fall, sickness longs
I swap freedoms for moneys
…either way, soon I return
to morning, sober like a spider
where a mere fud cannot reach me

from Enemies: the selected poems of SJ Fowler (London: Penned in the Margins, 2013).
