stung


Finland 1968 by gf mobely

i turned from the colour
stung by the canary and robin
eyes streamed with ice shards
i clung onto the black
focusing on the birch trees
and their  monochrome bark
mottled like my feet
in their inappropriate footwear.

Do go to the Mag to see the other poets work...
