cul-de-sac (spectral) by Jonathan Coward

cul-de-sac (spectral)

for the first time terminus did not agree with its dictionary definition
but was boundless in a way i’ve dreamed of late.

undulating sheep fields with big oaks knocking around by the road.
a long-pictured stand-in for somewhere-on-sea meaning terminus.

purple wormhole terminus over kings cross saint pancreas. imagine that!
a crunching gravel turning circle terminus,

or that other terminus of things deemed worthless as spent hens.

JONATHAN COWARD co-edits Thing Power, a pamphlet micropublishing project for non-anthropocentric and environmental texts. His poems have appeared in Adjacent Pineapple and Glasgow Review of Books.
