Presence defined by Absence

For Weights of Blood

Granite farms.
For swaying breaths
Granite bridges.

For a watering eye
Granite walls
Granite headstones
For what is lost

For what adheres
To the lip’s stir
As to the granite
A hand’s shadow.

Granite oblations
Propped on the summit
For faceless prescence
By soft-hand absence.

– Ted Hughes –
