Monthly poem - January 2021

COUNTRY MOON

The moon last night
Cut right in half
By a cloudy scarf

A white bone
In the soft dark
She was my medicine spoon

Alone in the house
At the end of the track
Through the wet window

She loomed
A flat faced nurse
A spinning plate

In the universe
An ivory brooch
On the night’s cloak

She jumped my heart
And then the stars
Like electrical sparks

Twitched the light
Of the turning wheel
In the winter night.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
