That Old Refrain

By Valentina Bonnaire

Don't Leave
by Eileen Malone © 2004

It's only a false dawn, this small startle
overturn the wheelbarrow
full of pale-purpled damp jacaranda leaves
this is now, all I've got left that is mine

on this day of raspberry drizzle
that leaks in, just lie down with me, please
naked, here in the garden
among the rosy fragrance of fallen apples
broken to reveal their cores
with their stars of seeds

between fresh worms rooting in yeasting earth
flood me, bury me in strawberry and lake water

give me your lips, kiss me in amaranth, jasmine
open your mouth with its dark spikes
like shark teeth straining
let me swim to you, surrender to the current

peel away the morning from dappled things
bejangled roots, ferny, riffled leaflight

let me embrace your naked waist
on a bed of purple leaves up from this lush pile
of the jacarandas' lavender snow
a crush, a compost mulch of now
all that is left, that is mine.
