Colin Welch


after Magritte


i know the blemish
along the apple’s feet
i’ve watched the shine
along its hips sour
& soot
the wick backwards
twisting in the sunlight

blight always begins
in the crown
arsenic & cancer
we are too young
for this skin wither

we green things
suit & ready
in the gallery
how have i missed
the wider world?

i watched it

dry rot in the sun
