States of Poetry 2016 - TAS | 'kangaroo grass' by Adrienne Eberhard

kangaroo grass


ramayana puppet
                     angled, spare

you gesture with sharp fingers
                    beckoning insistent

eloquent as a mime artist
                   nodding your body

to shadows in weak light
                   each seed head pared

you lure the breeze
                   tethering sky to earth

a binding
                   that is pure theatre

Adrienne Eberhard
