This is where you can find all of my fiction, including Gravedigger. This way, some of my other work - I know some of you are fond of White Fire Brother in particular - will not get lost in my gallery.
All things burnishAll things burnish.All things burnish by Autumn-Hills
A curtain wall of cloud surrounds
toasted hills and wet black road
The blue sky is holding a long note
the warm major chord sings
before the deep breath inward.
As the terraces of cloud
birds wing home to glory-green:
reedbeds fat with summer,
trees reaching with a ready yawn
Tumescent berries harden
crimson in banks of thorn
tweaked to tart-bright nubs
in dark thickets-
the delight of August as she dies
nipples plucked by birds
is slow and beautiful
sweetened with bouts of tears.
In this light
the raincloud greatcloak
smooths the dusk
across fire-set fields, a shade of grey
best fit for a wedding dress
vowing a warm night
and the sleep of tired lovers.
The Anglian MigrantHe hailed from a floodbowl under a map of white fuelThe Anglian Migrant by Autumn-Hills
but did not stay there,
burning up the flat roads with his heels
to drink the wide blue yawn of Norfolk
and knock the sleep from his eyes with ivied oaks,
that stand lonesome by patchy fields.
He missed the fog, egged from swarms of fat jets
the flight-path lullaby,
the humpy-bumpy flags of barley and rapeseed
heights that hang higher than flat Norfolk,
he missed ancient houses bulging white under black thatch,
not thrust flint-square in blocks of chalk.
The salt winds cleaned sweetly in answer
to years of huffed fug,
and coastal roads, California, Scratby
webbed around the broad broads of Norfolk
smoothed his once lumpen views into green frames and blue mirrors,
blown clear, then cloudy with great white alps.
