Two Poems

by Suzanne Fortin

1973 barron crescent

the wife invites you
to sit on the sofa,
covered in plastic
asking that you

not mind the dust

as she spends her free time
knitting petitions
in defence of
the jolly surgeon,
who performed her abortion,
in order to lull the sorrow
of this year's miscarriage

the husband confesses
his sense of priorities
it's his new business

they are fervent believers
in this new neighbourhood
the yard is barren, but they
hope to landscape it
to reflect their iconoclastic
spiritual lifestyle
rooted in the Earth


the angry hornèd moon
about to bite
the Morning Star who
dogs her light

with her purity
