Fertile Ground: Selected Poetry Reading

Audre Lorde
Fantasy and conversation

Speckled frogs leap from my mouth
to drown in the coffee
between our wisdoms
and decision.
I could smile
and turn these frogs into pearls
speak of love, our making and giving.
And if the spell works
will I break down
or build what is broken
into a new house
shook with confusion
will I strike
before our magic
turns colour?
