Anthony Lawrence Poems

Eating Honey

A cold extraction
from the sacred geometry of the combs,
my tongue released
into the essence of destinations, arrivals,
and a process bellowed smoke reveals


This pliable, light-keeping amber stem,
fleshed with sea leather
and a hollow, reef-tapping cup

The Searoad

Where are they going? Where waterspouts lower their silver
taproots into the vanishing point of a Tasman searoad,
read the ocean's internal workings by what happens
on the surface, in ulcerous light, in the wake of a longliner:

The Wandering Albatross

It's as though the Continental Shelf
with its east-facing rifts and cliffs were visible;
as though the full-bodied waves that blow over it,

Wind Sheer

And now the storm is inside.

He holds himself,
in the manner of a man unsure of his body
and what it can do, under pressure.
