Leithtown


ISSUE:  Autumn 1982
here the deer
eat tulip bulbs
and the women
large-eared
turn apricots slowly
in their mouths

see babies rushing
from the leaves
petals on their
bellies
see the blouses
blue lifting and
stiffening in rough hands

the earth here eats up
the air you plant in it
the dark chrysanthemums lower
their heads letting
deep red daggers
stroke the ground

Leightown
a grotesque lesson
in modern dance a very
good place to gather
audacity here
mere twigs deliver
each black morning’s
 ice
