Frank St.

A sequence of poems by Cameron Anstee


your fingers

and where they make familiar

and this room makes more sense

you arranged the furniture

while I picked up boxes

the things we carried here

and their shapes from light

our pillows match your birthmark

the ivy, and the umbrella, and the cactus

from Champagne

yes, we’ve kept these plants alive

and some days we remember
