Waters to cross, saliva and the sea,
phrases floating as tongue’s steerage,
cultures and language admitted and
passed
through the registry of my mouth

21 Pages

A thought provoking collection of short, intense poems. Fraught with symbolism and danger these tight poems make us think; about the secret places they dwell in and about ourselves.

From Ties

D e s e r t e d

That artichoke
lying on those scarlet
cinders
under the splintered
sycamore
makes me tremble;

this jigsaw becomes the 21st koan,
another ribbon to swallow.

Charing Cross Bridge and other Poems

CharingCross

Author: Peggy Garrison
Cover art: Abdellah Akhdi
ISBN 1-893068-00-5

20 Pages

Each poem in this collection draws its inspiration from a masterpiece of modern painting. However, never do the poems remain locked within the canvass. The paintings are merely a jumping-off point for the author’s imagination or for a journey to the past.

From Charing Cross Bridge
Old cars are moving down the
promenade
like slow horses;
a bus loaded with misery
grinds back to the past.
