SIPHONING

Daisy Lafarge

habitual catalogue of the day, intro ft.
blossom fallen from a gated
property and crisping on the pavement’s
piss-streaked sun, kicked
out of shape by the advance of
a woman whose feet pass quickly
then recede in the distance
soon followed by a girl whose shoulders
curl a phonetic c as she frowns (at
feet/blossom/pavement)
at which point the narrative corrects
the woman as Mother & the latter
grammar as Disobedient
Daughter, and the world shakes off
its hope of distance to assume a
familiar shape: in which
the blossom becomes fallout
of some unseen conflict & we
the barely treading water, like toothless
children bobbing for apples
& ushering worlds
round their axes
