Plas Teg

Wire hair scattered her head,

her leopard print pants

clutch cold legs.

A black eye

shadows her brow,

making clay skin

and pearlescent sheen.

Shifting stones and

chipping Jacobite staircases:

replenishing the dewed house –

taking the big tree away,

taking 26 years and storing them

inside statues,

moss-carpeted pathways,

and snail-etched window-frames.

Nature tip-toeing in,

in her stiletto heels.
