Poems on the Buses Exhibition

I fetched the horned ram’s head down
from the field where we had hidden
it behind a tree     buried in bracken
as though we had committed a crime
and hidden the evidence     grey

and weather worn     ten years old or
more it sleeps in silence     an empty
snail’s shell curled within the cavity
of its brain     stilled spirals signs of
two lives stopped     cycled into eternity
