‘Riffling the Pages’

in an octagonal tower, five miles from the sea
he lives quietly with his books and doves
all walls are white, some days he wears
green spectacles, not reading

riffling the pages – low sounds of birds and their flying

holding to the use of familiar objects
in the light that is not quite
                               – Tom Raworth, 'Inner Space'
