Like Rain

by Anthony Wilson

Piano notes
arrange themselves

with help
from you

playing them
in twos

and threes
then pause

before coming
home again

in twos 
and threes

fresher than
before and

exactly the 
same except

you played
them not 

knowing what
came next


Anthony Wilson’s most recent books are The Afterlife (Worple Press, 2019) and Deck Shoes, a collection of essays (Impress Books, 2019). In 2015 Anthony published Lifesaving Poems (Bloodaxe Books), after his blog of the same name.
