Poetry from Aline Page

We are delighted to offer these three delicious poems from local writer Aline Page…


Irrista-nibble …
Blooming, sweet grapes roll between
Sea salted peppered crackers,
Snappily dressed, smoked salmon with dill,
Vol-au-vent ready to fill
with saucy crab and prawn
Alongside the forlorn parsley bouquet
Lies the salmon cream cheese roulette,
With pink lobster bisque pate,
Twinned with pert olives, piquantly stuffed,
As tart strawberries lay, risqué,
hewn, hulled and strewn,
Dotted with black cherries to mark
The Fan-fayre Spread in a splaying arc
Mingling with tingling tasty
tantalisingly segments of tangerine,
Tangy chutney, crunchy and sweet,
Conveniently close to hard cheese chunks,
Applewood smoked, fresh cut apple wedges
pressed against veiny Stilton and Danish Blue,
Lured among soft oozing Brie, gooey Camembert,
Cheddar gorged, feasting eyes roam
Across the groovily grained wooden board
Toward ruby dark wine in sparkling glasses,
Briskly searching for pickled onions, crisps, peanuts …

Tittle Tattle

Shallow, rattling around,
Crashing and clanging against walls,
Sound ringing inside a coconut head,
Nothing to say, just idle banter,
Tittle tattle, filling empty space
With nothing that makes a difference,
Even if it makes sense.

Small Change

She rhythmically sighs with the days going by, forever
Too clever by half to commit to One dove,
Loved by many but soul burnt and spent,
As he cups the small change of her breasts;
She swoons, bemoaning to the moon,
Into the arms of the Cooing man.
Lovers lost and detested, rejected, flown,
She cares not, all alone
