Number 13


Christmas is approaching fast
a couple of days now
I saw a man put a slab of honeycomb
on his head like a hat
the honey dripped down
like a choir’s song
over his shoulders
his tears fell like wax

Christmas is burdening the winter
a week or two
of logs in a fireplace
public joy goes into the air like sparks
the people weep fir trees
howl ribbons of tape
how the crunch
of their Christmas boots
strains the hard chest of earth

Christmas sits in the corner of the room
with fruit pies and magpies
and mad black crows of glass and wine
peace be ours
cry the loudspeakers
parking for your car
in the depth of your dreams
crumbs for the birds at your fingertips

Some Trees
by Malgorzata Wolak Dault


Number 1

I have taken the title for this new column from Some Trees, a volume of poems by John Ashbery from 1956.

In this photograph, an old oak tree stands listless under the sky like a vessel and yet, as a time-worn cast-iron bell, it holds the memory of the sounds of all the birds and creatures it had ever encountered.

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee

Uzbekistan (November, 2019) – We walked back through the Bagcha-Darvaza gate of Khiva after a jaunt outside the Ichan Kala; coincidently discovering a lovely eighteenth century plastered portico with carved wooden beams adjacent to a mini subterranean mosque. As we wandered through in admiration, the curators extended us some of their lunch.
