THEME FROM NEXT DATE by Keith Higginbotham

The 26th offering from Ten Pages Press is now available: Theme From Next Date by Keith Higginbotham.

Jigsaw

figurative stitched-on
characters of the
picture plane, moving
the story
recurring a device, a passage
of caustic confessionals.

a head-on car
metaphor for a tortured
relationship in paint drips
and speech bubbles.  a green
hillside gestural embroidery
a resolution for metaphorical
approach.  also

simple:  faceless intimacy at
desks of potted
plants, a hint of glamorous
medieval delirium.

(This poem originally appeared in Liebamour.)
