AVANT-GARDEN

Elicit gift of a garden brush

a vesicular heel of over-handled wood,

obsolete without working hands looped

because I’m busy tying knots in the trellis’ rope

for when in bloom

they hold me ope’

Rise then, off-pink Clematis shoot

a street of archers ready to loosen ‘rows,

buds hold patient like hoods to heads

—butterflies—and—bees—pry—

at hedge level height from an ant

the same distance of sky

from the hull of a plane and I
