Poem

By ER de Siqueira

dialogue with ‘Espalier’ by Laura Scott

 

whose idea it was
to rip off the leaf

of a twig like this
at eye level

 

and forget it
inside poetry?

 

a crumpled flower
locked in between pages

dodging from bookworms
so thin 

 

nearly wafer
a bookmark

 

blurring the metaphor
between a verse and a kiss.
