Unforeseen Monsters

Graeme Beaton

PureInsight | April 15, 2007


If you had tonight & if you had today

I would bring you flowers.

And if you had tonight you would take a walk

 - lift up your face to the rain.

And if you had today I would take you to where

fields of yellow meet you as you rise over a hill

- fields of light.

It's too late

you have seen monsters

but there are so many

& these days it seems

there is no-one to pray to

- no-one to protect you.

I cannot see

I no longer have my eyes.

I cannot believe

& my hands are tied.


(I cannot watch your films preaching contentment.

I go for a walk along a black & white river.)
