Poetry of John Shaw

      The Line


      There were two and between each a line
      just under the surface and for the time
      out of sight, but none the less there
      far enough not to scare away each from the other
      but under darkness cover both knew
      at a certain place and hour they
      would cross the line or not
      and in doing sour what was for what will be
      and on that place and hour they will see, I think
      no matter where they stand
      they will be better for the decision.
