Aidan Semmens' A Stone Dog (Shearsman, 2011), first selection


For the destroyer shall come suddenly upon us

that which is manifest begins
with the seed of itself

blurred stirrings
of whatever is new, may be invented

hard black buds of ash
embers of haw

osier incipient

we weep
on bairns' bones
in our own decay

a desert harvest

toxic growth

a language

Aidan Semmens
