• Beau Beakhouse

Willow like Wisteria

The serrated curling ferns

pulsate at their edges

like convex turns in walls of glass

Willow trees like wisteria


like separate chandeliers

their knotted branches bow like

lit lanterns

in ancient silver castles

Their long thin leaves

like bunched waves of golden auburn hair

flames curling together

in multitudinous coupled curves

Everything is wet and soaking

Browning pine needles coat the floor

in spaces designated

for timeless forests

Purple peach flesh,

bitter plums

the suction bruising left after a kiss

The colour of this

exudes from within the green...
