"Aurascope" from Nerys Williams' Sound Archive (Seren, 2011)


You came with Mr Rhetoric
and the light found a pattern
for his squat figure guarding the door.

We sped, or rather I, through countries
I never really knew
while a fire fell in the grate.

The phantom caller sketched my hand
watching the butterfly ring
beat metal spirals on my finger.

My favourite perfume was a room of laughter,
in the sound between my aurascope
clouds emptied of your face.
