Two Poems by Alan Britt

INWARD ANGELS

Banana pepper sways
above firma, single
toe scratching
upturned earth.

Another pepper curves
her waxy thigh around
teal tranquility
of solitude.

Little breeze pulls
her glistening fingertips
through the dusky hair
of golden tomatoes.

White aluminum recliner
creaks when little breeze
rubs her mercury waist
against my cheek.



WEST PALM TREES

Palm trees evoke a cross between
Elephant Man & octopus spread-
eagle across sea breezes that tickle
3rd husband where he hasn't been
since wife number 2 lost her mind
to a cave-in years ago.

Palm trees nuzzle shadows like star
nosed moles or levitate like pudgy
buddhas flailing nihilistic arms
& legs above the foaming Atlantic.



Alan Britt's interview at The Library of Congress for The Poet and the Poem (http://www.loc.gov/poetry/poetpoem.html#alan-britt) will air on Pacifica Radio http://www.pacifica.org/index.php in January 2013.
