Docetaxel* 1

serrated horizon
how the mountains
carve the sky

prick of daggers
evergreens' green blades 
slice white into the blue

whingeing bones
lean and creak
against the west

that high whine
wind buzz
friction zippered in

Earth’s old joints
the hammers’
patternless bruising

*Docetaxel is a chemotherapy drug
