Poems By Anne Fraser

 

Slipping

Pebbles
through a paper bag,
words
through an open mouth.

I have become
a circle receding,
white light
through the iris
of an eye,

and you,
who have taken
so much
of my life,

know that I
have become
the sun,
and you
the blind.

 


Beneath the Branches

An afternoon,
a drink to share;
ripe fruit,
a taste suspended
at the back
of the mouth;

above them,
winds pause
to consider shadows
of entangled leaves
that dot the grass
like ragged
footprints
and move on -

his breath
across her belly,
slowing releasing
the peach
from her hand.
