SIMON PERCHIK
'Afraid and the wall'

Afraid and the wall follows behind though you point, know all about descent and hammer blows as the distant cry from home –you sift between as if this ready-mix no longer cares about stone broken open against one finger retracing some caress lost and the others with no end to it.

SIMON PERCHIK
'There’s still a chance'

There’s still a chance, sit so you can’t see the tunnel fanning out behind you and the sky that knows so much about it lowers this train to the ground still falling back, tormented by something overdue, the seat half firewall, half some hollow mound moving away without the others, high above the evening you are looking for though you turn your back the way your eyelids are used to the dark at home in your hands, no longer uncertain when to close and grieve –all these years reflected in the night your face gives off, clouded over with glass, holding on, sleepless –arrive unexpected! grown over with weeds, with the hidden mountainside around your shoulders and emptiness.
