Three Poems
by Adam Roberts


Some basic forms, such as eyes and limbs, develop early. There is always the possibility that something minor will go wrong at this early phase, in which case the body may be right to reject everything








the brightest channel of seeds

a trash forest in the waves


continues to waver with leaves





I will be selfish
about trees, blue
light, about

breathing, trees

will be selfish, I am fine
