JUNE ELEGY
i.m. J.S.F., 19.10.1937—17.6.1999

Stanley when
night deepened
in false hell
the angel
Gabriel
arriving
as sudden as spring
on lilywhite wings
stooped to kiss
your trembling lips
in the endless
fluorescent hiss
and Grace
fell upon you
and upon you
fell Grace

And so therefore
the State’s war
against your flesh
its passionless
mess of thrusts
raged & raged
nor was stayed
till in the June shade
your redflowing veins
insatiate of pain
again & again
thrilled with flame
and Love
there became you
and there you
became Love
