Mind The Gap

 Mind The Gap

To be certain our species
would flourish, 

God

constructed a magnetic 
attraction within us

so powerful

that when young Men

were stopped by a deep
and rushing flow of icy

water

or a gaping, precipitous

chasm

rent in the earth,

these self-same Men 
peered forth

and saw 

comely young Women

on the far side
(picking wild flowers).

And then

God

could be certain

bridges would be built.

Can you lay a big tree down, Rhys?
 
Yes, an’ it be gently 
 
felled as any Welsh babe
 
ever laid to cradle.
 
Can you make it 
 
fall exactly so, Rhys?
 
Aye. Set your compass to it. 
 
It’ll
fall as 
      straight 
                   as 
                       any 
       country 
                    road 
                             in 
                                 Wales.
 
Then have a go at it, Rhys, 
 
but let me caution 
 
you, trees are as unruly 
 
as your lovely Blodwyn, or any woman.
 
Yeah, yeah. I’ll be minding that.
