EXCERPT





Mediterranean Calls



Yellow_ teasing_



broken_ alabaster_



Basted blue in a closed pewter pot



Cut the hands of the blade



pour slow the anger



And mind the pages when they’re hot



Slow_ are the mindless minutes after the



‘sorrow’s flight’



…The light’s fine in here, so’s the beer



Yesterday is just a melted muse of lectures_



leering at the multitudes_



_draped ‘long side an overcoat



she wore in another time
