More Press Poems

Congratulations to both Annie Orre and Karen Duncan who have had poems published lately in the Press – Annie on April 23 and Karen today, 7 May – that makes, I think, 3 students in a row! Here is Annie’s poem

Spider’s Web

The division of chores is a sore point
a bone picked at, shards of bitterness
slice the domestic air.
Women’s  work he snarls as duty-bound
and fearing reprisal, he hangs out
the washing, gripping the luminous
pink  plastic pegs in his teeth.
A spider’s web, glistening in the
morning dew forms a gossamer
curtain through which her bikini
briefs sparkle. He  strokes the  white lace,
allows a tender smile at their absurdity.
