Matthew Johnstone – 2 poems

Separate Hanging Land

Foregrounds open    you, to some recoil  how the harbors put to apprehend a low area
disordering    far men           the tips of the horses watch               the tips of the grass how in

resolution the regions hum            spear mar                   we being our own things polarize
the whole, among     these   cathedral bright        tips of grass   adjusted



One the erratic trees cut     grey     determined    through cylinders    the event of the field
the excess      with nothing             splitting         there   you saying born        is this removal

announced,    without is to drown is to first to   be among       I am away from memory as from event    is it winter, this    throwing up tree       maybe contour fed, become my removal
