Poetry : Don Wentworth

1 : 2 : 3 : 4 : 5 : 6 : 7 : 8 : 9 : 10



In The Weekly Corporate Meeting

Suddenly, the way
the crass woman holds up
her hand, the gentle angle
of palm to wrist, the fourth
finger listing slightly forward,
the usual No, a tentative Yes,
her lips quietly moving -
Buddha’s ageless voice.
