Poetry


Habitat
Sheila Murphy

 

River amounts to moist happenstance
as papal as a bulletin recited a cappella.

One of us has been Copernicus; the other,
alert to shelf life on the precipice of an excuse.

Get that parrot out of my garden.
Banish straight-edged melody, please.

Both of these work: also, lemonade,
Fortran, chemistry of the body in a soap dish.

I neglected the capture of a robin's perch
alongside rumination after far-flung waves.
