Let's Consider The Meaning Of Good

Let's consider the meaning of good.
The farmer rises
pre-dawn and gone into skies of rain
hard labour, hauling stones
until one afternoon
he sits in an armchair,
afternoon of the seventh day
waves of light...

holes in the knees, elbows out
legs stretched before him
travelling on for miles
flagstones and heels
thatch of hair, stubble on his cheeks, and eyes
far away, going the distance
head back, black gap for a tooth
the void to come.
