Norah's Head


BACKDROP ADDRESSES CITY GIRL

Twenty pages past
No fiction reprint
Detailed by shaved legs that rub
Against newspaper print.
What a crisp resume
Feeding this curt stride
Against a temperamental deep
And its calming pride.
Lulled by perseverance
And traffic holler,
The fecund coin sounds change
Clinking in a purse off to the side.
From days’ security
Sincerity you grin,
Continuing further down your paved coastal holiday.
