from Ace

Tom Raworth
new face
from my home
what do you think
i'll voice out
of the news
alive and in love
another hole
near the edge
of the label and
play it
from there
with a light
bless you brother
til the energy
gaps again
let light
history think
leaves some thing
like a bomb
relief again
to sail
