Accouterments by Celia Turner

Poet Bio

Twisted sheets untangle,
Become envelope ready to mail
Next night’s sleep.

Coffee diffuses milk.
Au lait, ole!

Car coughs to life.
Internal combustion,
Ode to oil.

Varnished wood floors
Vibrate with pock of Pickleball.

O of mouth, rings of throat,
Chill water. Quenches.

Spoons clatter in the drawer
Haz mi un posole!

Rich broth tumbles tender hominy.
All is well with the world
In this instant.

Unspool your mind,
Succumb, succumb.
