Untitled poem – Madeleine St. Romain

Madeleine St Romain

1
There is a woman in a tree.
There is a tree that is half woman.
Head full of wind.
Head full of wings.
Who needs to walk when the world blows through you?
The tree talks.
The woman listens.
I am telling you a story in which there are secrets that I do not know.
2
Why wait for lightning?
Let me sieve you.
Capturing your discreet core from motion
From berms and bars
From ships at sea.
Melted.
Fixed.
Are you a window?
Is there a view?
3
Open the box.
Let whatever out.
Walking in pearl
Can you see me?
Rustling
Turning
Again
Again
Glass dust
Oak leaves
Flung away
Flying
Tell me a story
A voice as I unspool
