February’s Poem by Jason Jackson

 

Brothers by Jason Jackson

The hard darkness

of a quick, black rat

shocked us from the hayloft,

but as surely as shadows

have teeth, fear makes us

complete – so in a summer

story we returned,

brave, short-trousered,

full of plans to catch,

to kill, until we found

a sodden corpse,

slick and black,

with eaten eyes

and a bite on its belly.

 

You kicked it

you picked it up,

you threw the flattened thing,

and as lightening scarred our sky

we waited for a distant thunder

to rumble us a future

full of new fears.

Jason Jackson’s poetry and short fiction has been widely published and performed. You can find links to his work at www.tryingtofindthewords.blogspot.co.uk
