(sabrina scott). a perfect marriage, yes?
here is my imitation of Wallace Stevens’ “Study of Two Pears”
Study of Two Asparagus
Compendium octavo
The asparagus are not dragon nails,
phalanges or young barnacles
They resemble nothing else.
II
They are green forms
Composed of palid strings
Thin and eloquent,
They are touched yellow and lavender
III
They are not round surfaces
Having elongated outlines
They are angular
Pointed tips on top
IV
In the way they are modeled
They have soft scale spikes
Growing upwards
Squirmy indented leaves
V
The green glows
It glows with various greens,
Golds, greys, and earthens.
Flowering over the skin
VI
The shapes of the asparagus
Are brush strokes on my plate
The asparagus are not seen
As the observer wills.
my center square!
