Edinburgh

T. —

Ha! Here I was thinking that my day was so productive, when I realize: it’s after dinner, and I forgot to write to you! Here I am, but now I’m running off again. In the meantime, I’m getting a lot done!

This Moment
Eavan Boland 

A neighbourhood.
At dusk.

Things are getting ready
to happen
out of sight.

Stars and moths.
And rinds slanting around fruit.

But not yet.

One tree is black.
One window is yellow as butter.

A woman leans down to catch a child
who has run into her arms
this moment.

Stars rise.
Moths flutter.
Apples sweeten in the dark.

Good afternoon,
M
