Tankards

Tommy Strollers Poetry GeneralPosted by Graham Thompson Mon, November 23, 2015 15:00:38

Dim the eyes

And lance the post that props the bar

Yellow axe the windowed saloon

The silver vessels hang in glint array

Holding the air of absent owners

Our afternoon of waiting


The bar breaks like a wave

Before an eleventh hour

The clock chimes each tankard

Full of the broth of earth drained swell

The tankard beer drank down

Down to the well of drunken dreams


Poet's Note: This was written a long time ago and I had never read Celan's poem: see Great Poetry
