            REBECCA JAYNE

(2 yrs of


Observing the precarious


of household plants


swiftly followed by

the sideways glance

at buttered scones –


aroused by appetites

of taste and touch and sight –


she reaches out to clutch

the flower, trembling

with anticipation of the feel


or knowledge of restraining hands.


Seeking adulation

with every tentative step –

the pleasure of each stretch


a fleeting reminiscence

of the unencumbered state

of birthday grace.
