Shame II

I was recording in St Anns and had one day free.
So I told my father I’d be back in December;
and he said, ‘December? No, I want to see
my son, Tony; we in August.’

Everything is symbolic in literature. The dust
at dry noon in Sam Boucaud, the small birds
within the emptiness of the cricket field. Heat
burning water into sound; tall jungle.

My father appeared through curtains, thin
with eyes that now saw past the limits of ours.
The impish swirl of his laughter was gone.
In the photographs I took that afternoon
he seemed to be leaning away, leaning as if
from life, from love, in shame.

(Sonnets for Albert, 2022, Bloomsbury)
