National Poetry Month: TEA WITH MS. QUAN by Dan George
Tea with Ms. Quan
by Dan George
soft edges ripening in the sun of an empty bag
I’ve been thirsting for the future textures
this pumpkin decomposing articulates our atmosphere
Let’s manifest a line the mind finds charming
sexual ripened ethereal
Black grapes ripening in the hill’s white hands?
animal transforming into night
Autumn rolled through the trees shaking his fist of coins—
red is the dress of the leaves as they open
