Savvy Poem – Ash Portrait

Inspiration borrowed from ‘The Oval Portrait’, a short story by Edgar Allan Poe.

I sit

and, whilst sitting here,

ripe, if not ready, for the coppicing,

the length of the brush offers sparse protection

against the swoop

of desire.

 

Later, during the sweeping, I will swipe myself back into the pith of

the Ash.
