Blue Lotuses - Ian Storr

Country market

the transactions of doves

above in the trees

  

blue lotuses

vervets one by one

swim the river bend

‚Äč

near the road north

another train hoots twice

—the night’s heat

 

electrical storm

the cape buffalo bull’s

appraising stare

 

Karoo sheep

herded down a dirt road

flowering sweet thorn

 

traffic lights at red

a man with no fingers

asks for money
