Poem – PAPERS FLUTTER (By John Tustin)



Papers flutter

Pears fall

And fall

All Fall


In orchards

Of near-death

Where you



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



And eyes bigger

Than the bang

That birthed

The sun
