Anna Couani

 

 

it’s

with a sense of wonder that

we rediscover the local

see faces

in old walls

on flinty wood

 

she held the silver goblet

fingers running

over its sculpted surface

 

faces

actually bodies

maybe torsos

all wrong

for ceremonial purposes

 

the snapshot

of a black dog

in a pool

 

the dog, Bob

suiting the photos

the unease

of dog in chlorine

 

she in a bikini

Dad with long hair

kind of wrong

the hair

 

look down at the kerb

old stones, now rounded

sometimes replaced

with new stones

that quickly break

 

the lovely stainless steel drain

a grid showing fish

warning of sea pollution

“this goes to the sea”

 

at ground level

the edges of ashphalt

where things meet

interstices

where things crumble

where things don’t quite meet

 

speaking of the ground

that they cover

 

you can look cool

but not actually be cool

 

like the book cover

looks modern

same old 19th century

novel
