My poem “Blackcurrants” in Catalyst 17

My poem Blackcurrants has been published in the latest Catalyst. I am grateful to the editors.

 

Blackcurrants

 

 you fill large enamel pots

with ripe blackcurrants

the warm air pungent

& sticky with their juice

 

I was never sure what

you did with them all

 

those bushes are gone now

along with your pruned roses

& the willow tree

& you

 

yet here I am always

looking up at you

your back bent picking

from the rows of bushes

with overflowing basins

at your feet
