Excerpt

honeysuckle

 

those who live much in the past

beautiful cream-coloured flowers

they do not expect further happiness

such as they have had

threatens the biodiversity of wild

ambitions

which have not come true

 

our obsolete hostilities

drawing in air

grudging or emulous

as a dry pump

 

cloverhead

one not taken advantage of

rises from underground

to the long-tongued
