Poem – PAPERS FLUTTER (By John Tustin)

PAPERS FLUTTER

 

Papers flutter

Pears fall

And fall

All Fall

 

In orchards

Of near-death

Where you

Reside

 

Hiding behind

Trees and

Piles of over-

Ripe fruit

 

Waiting for

Snow blankets

Waiting for

No sun

 

I feel you

Your presence

Your feet like

Quicksand

 

And eyes bigger

Than the bang

That birthed

The sun
