Twilight maize


Mandy Mitchells - 2009-05-14

We drive at twilight
And my daughter tells me
That air has no colour
Yet, I try to press
This beauty
Into words
To contain it
Impossible
I feel my tongue stick
On a pastel canvas
Where rows of maize
Hauntingly stark
Form undressed figures
In the half light
And my words reflect
Off mirrored water
Only to be swallowed
Again
