XVII. For George Orwell               

 

Death, peel off             

my ragged cast –! 

Your dawning             

brings the end of lies –             

an empty stage,              

a heap of bones.

XVIII. For Andrei Tarkovsky            

 

Frozen kisses             

& a rusty bunch of keys            

drowning in slow motion.            

Blue narcoleptic shivers.          

Black birches in the mist.
