Whisper

by James Walton (follow)
Whisper ‘Antarctica’ in your love’s ear
emphasise the ‘c’ so she knows you’re serious,
sang- froid continent expansive enough
perhaps to carry the weight of sighs.

Settle around the voile of unbridled climate change
in a tangle of sheets from this break away berg,
evaporate together at the drip of exchange
lose the way back in there here.

Slippery aurora pillows sightless the blinds
have courage to stress the second ‘c’ aloud,
now a tropical breakfast of avocadoes
in the pineapple clasp of all melting barriers.
