Mainly Cladding

my day-to-day is mainly cladding
like the tie-dyed cloud
scarfing last night’s moon

call it misguided
(my detailed examination of tree necks)
but have you seen
the loving press 
of grey rings
soft and round as ghost kisses?

I wish I could believe in spirits
or at least in more 
than clock hands, 
their indelicate flinging of mud-balls
(thunder cloaked as mischance)

each morning
my porcelain landscape
a splintered bandana
of yesterday’s colours

time is a war zone
these days
and the answers,
like my render, are cracking
