Les Prescott


was passed down
from one sure hand to another's.
I cultivate drawers and dark corners
where love flourishes.
It's the way the sun sings on its surface
this summer morning
that reminds me of time shared
gathering gem after gem
in search of the durable. I polish
these gems to pass down
to another sure hand.

Les Prescott is a Scotsman Glaswegian living and performing in Berlin.  He spends a lot of time in a cottage on a tiny island on the outskirts of the city where he writes or conceives most of his work.
