Pitching Camp by Andrew Taylor

Veering on early morning runs
to walk in old cemeteries
people have lived died and were loved

the city is historical artefact

seek a local tavern for chowder
attempt to fill a notebook page

in anticipation the scheme of things
inconsequential the smallness

of a speck of dust on a railway line
or a fly on a cactus

a pointer of universality

She feels as though her heart is
walking around in front of her
