Anne Gorrick
Ballast at Ashburton Head

for DR

 

 

Chided and ditched dice

corded to chloride

 

A north drenched with thorns

 

Cinder: indirect, cried, thin

 

A minor edict toward décor

 

The drone of the tide

as it gets older, red

 

Inert, nitre, tern

 

He edits the ditch orchids

indicted chords over herded lichen

 

Ethics clothed in ocher, echo, etch

 

Cited riddled in drindl

 

When

tendril = citron

chitin = tonic

ached = heraldic

 

Candles to cradles

dance against the cedar

 

Crated, redact, acrid dicta

 

Acres of nectar and a red chair

 

Without anchors or coral

 

The relics in his diction enthrall
