Cat's - Eye 👁

Visible to anyone in the world

        Cat's - Eye

The shock of a world, caught

In a headlight beam.
A country road by night,
each weed brandishing up towards you fronds spread, as ruthless as beggars,

each branch like a meaning overemphasised,

each particulate thing, crouched round at you, at bay:

the light from the retinal cave
the way the full moon throws it back

one moment when you don't know which, you or the world,

will veer or break and run.
