SANDI SARTORELLI

1 | 2 | 3

 

Pass the standing stone please dear

 

Certain words are pillars; rock,

stone, granite, bread, tea.  Lamingtons

 

even the filled ones, cannot coconut

the feelings jelly crystals and sponge-

cake are known to leave behind.

 

Bloody crumbs. Heft some boulders

on the cake stand, now throw the runes

 

in. Limestone, sandstone, scoria,

a teapot full of scree, say cheers

under the avalanche of morning tea.
