One Poem by George Beddow

Dancing Barefoot

For Bella

All has been lost
to that caesura
between sundown
and the advent
of the Julian calendar.

Her life line’s
grasp
on eternity
is now
just a clasp
in Cleopatra’s
hair.

Under the influence
of moonshine
(or prayer)
her scars
are buffed
by the shoeshine
of countless stars.

 

George Beddow’s debut collection, Out Of Kilter, was published by Lapwing Press in 2012. His second collection, The Bitter Lemons Of Nerval, was published in 2016 by Original Plus Chapbooks.
