‘Tubular Bells’

Basle
-5 degrees
and in an icy park
I grab at one tree
after another
every handhold
jars

overhead
red berries
cryopreserved
in tubes of ice
hang like
crystal decorations
from David Jones

each jolt
sets them swinging
and they tinkle in
merry clarity

next December
as heat
expands into the afternoon
and I become only
the surface of my skin

the memory
of that clear sound
turns me back
to bone and sinew –
to wonder
about Christmas
in a sweltering world …
