Stefanie Bennett




Levertov’s Ladder  

Leaving, she saw them eat
Her words –and
The left-over gravy

In that re-devised tumbled
Down shack
The hawk-weed

Grows but doesn’t erase
The colour
Of absence –or

The stony telling
There by
A turnstile gate

As she, still with
Her smiling
Beauty on

Waved an even darker
… Aside.
