Roddy Williams – The Atheist Poet

In The Victory II (2013)

Crisp packets
reimagining a lost waltz round a bollard
under the cold scrutiny
of the sky and I.

Now a tango
can joins them
bringing the thought that
everything has a history.

Not so long ago their frocks
were full and waiting strictly like
for the approach.

Now here they are
after a grand adventure
free of baggage by
dint of randomness
and quantum physics.

Dancing. While it lasts.
