Gabrielle Bryden is currently infusing her blog with all things citrus, posting poems and recipes from some of her favourite bloggers. My poem, Orange from Ocean Hearted was featured today, so please do click on over and have a read.
Here’s another poem to celebrate Gabe’s love of citrus!
Cuttting Open the Dawn
Days shuffle bent-backed into the
cortex. Pour another Cuervo on ice
and juice it. Slice the lemon like
a party hack. Knife the surface.
It’s good to curl your fingers
in summer around something cool.
Shot of grenadine in the bottom
of the tumbler. The seduction of sun
behind hands bled to bone. There is
silence where there should have been
something. There, where the lemon’s
sucked the tequila out of us.
