Poetry: A Poetry Series at Deep Water Literary Journal

what is beneath ?

a scrap of satin – some wood
and what is beneath the wood ?
dirt, the earth,
it is cold
is it alive ?
it contains the stir of flowers
it contains the whispering grass
and above it all ?

some turf
the blue sky
what are you listening to ?
my dark blood
the heart plays a tattoo
beneath this pale linen
this wool-stuff
and ?
it listens for the stir of flowers
it hears the grass whisper.
