Three Poems by M.F Nagel

Love or a trick of light

Somewhere
East of the the
pale moons of twilight
Cometh the iceman
Sing ‘in memory in vespers’
In sacrarium; in sacrarium
(Has herself – himself – given whole life all pleasures
For sale at large
The great or last~sacre, the right to insurrect,
Resign oneself to parting with
accuracy to vividness)

Memory the great betrayer
Betrayer
Between the naked and the dead.

A handful of ashes
Burns white into day
Burns
Grey into night.

Love or a trick of light.


There are mountains

There are mountains
In my soul
mountains
Craved in ice and gold
Unconquered;
Still.

The old ones
Call my name
Reach
Climb
Break trail
Know the age
Of
Cave and calf
Recede retreat
Scale the highest peaks
Leave a low valley

There are mountains
In my soul
Mountains
Craved in ice and gold
Unconquered;
Still.
