for Kate

 

Although your mobile must be lying still

and unblinking on a bedside table,

or stuffed in a bag with a pointless diary,

tonight I ring it one last time, and hear

your voice, clear, unwavering, as you ask me

to please leave a message after the tone,

and then I try to pretend you’re busy,

writing songs on your scuffed acoustic, or down

in the lush, quiet county you were born in,

hands on the steering wheel’s leopard-print cover,

casually speeding south through a warren

of hedge-bound lanes, stone bridges, up over

Eggardon Hill, to the place you’d go to stare

at the waves, and breathe the incoming air.

Alan Buckley
