Curtain

You might trace

the eye-sockets

of enemies

 

settled in the folds;

curious samples of feet

– the duck

 

or elephant tramping off

the hem of the cliff.

I loathe a modern home

 

set to cream on cream;

a sterile soap pinching

corners; eyes have

 

no place to comb.

I like these cheap hotel

designs; the remnant bins

 

a hive of animates.

    I love this:

    Perfect.

  2. Thanks for your thoughts, Dean! Yes, it deals with fixation on patterns; shapes morphing. It’s not always the most comfortable experience, but mostly I like it.

  3. I like John’s description, another ‘spare gem’, especially as it comes from one who himself wastes so few words (not sure if Mr. Keast has ever ‘wasted’ a word). Dean’s comment is insightful as well. A ‘classic’ for me, Vicky! I love the ‘hem of the cliff’ as well, always have, as I grew up on a peninsula where such ‘hems’ are always changing.
