Best Poem of Esmond Jones

The Gardener

In the gloom of the dusty shed
he pulls faces at seed potatoes,
then shakes off their reek, snatches
back his breath from the underworld mould
and enters the sea-light of the greenhouse
where he grapples with a hose
that’s slipped his hold

as he’s hit by a heavy
jungle-smell
of yellowing tomatoes.

Next, the villain in him will show:
he’ll cut flowers for madam’s vase.
