The Poetry Bar

To Close Out A Letter

And now I sit
on the top step of the right-hand side
(looking o’er toward the cranes),
whilst the cascade is quiet, still –
there is no water flowing downward.

Will you dance upon the wooden-slatted platform?
Will you recreate the waterfalling river in your eyes?

My name is William Altoft. I’m a writer in and from (and consistently on) Bristol, in the UK.
