MALAISE

(Poem by Wendy Howe )
see also the french version

Petals fall to the floor
weary from a room cradling
too much heat .

A book of poetry is turned
face down on the table.
Lamplight reveals
its weakened spine, but the pages
stay warm, remembering
the scented flesh of a woman's thumb.

Nothing pleased her. Beaudelaire
could not seduce his reader.

She now sits
on a Persian rug staring
at a garden of peacocks,
lush berries and leaves

that shade the absence
of a lover,

that harbor a need
to fly away and dream.
