Drive

A Poem by Waconda Springs
"

the fewtch

"
It is enough
to take 

freshly fallen

leave

What will
jar bones.

buds blossom out
and away

out and away

out and away under
my toque
and all the space
between the sound
and the drum
thin like a bulrush,
my fingers frozen,
won't f**k with

I like how bare it is. No fluff or sentimental drivel.

It opens up almost like a haiku

Places the reader out in nature

but then in the second part it switches gear

Something about space drums fingers

Like the line 'between the sound and the drum'

Kinda reminds me of a Wallace Stevens snow poem.

it doesn't seem angry, it seems more melancholy, until its abrupt end.

yeah, like someone's fed up and leaving
minimal and spare, it strikes like a sharp note between the bars.

I love the starkness of this poem, befits winter very well in my opinion. The starkness says so much and yet so little, superb :) Like a wintered tree, bare and yet so wise.

to visualise the space between the sound and the drum was enough to satisfy me in this read :D now I am visualising frozen fingers cracking off in the harsh winter (I don't know too much about harsh winter's being for Sydney and all)

nice to see you X

fall is the best time to write...seems that October and November are poets' months...
the fingers might actually get moving again...
funny the irony...we thaw in fall...and freeze up in spring when it comes to writing.

Cool piece.
