Where Elders Play
by Joanna M. Weston

in the comfort
of the coal scuttle
I lean on tabloids
drink cold tea
and consider maids
milking petroglyphs

waking falcons
that climb cedars
before flying past
ebbing slide-rules
to an antiquity
black as midnight
where foals frolic
frantic sambas
against a background
of striking clocks
