PRIMROSE HILL | Elspeth Wilson finds new freedoms in a familiar place.

Poetry

by Elspeth Wilson

This is the first time in a long time
that someone has held me fiercely and said
let’s leap
without agenda nor consequence

to run with abandon
towards a cloaked sun, ungraspable on the horizon
is like a tongue along dry lips
providing the sweetness of forgetting discomfort for one stretched
moment

I clasp your hand and don’t let go
until we are far away from our beginnings.
