Anita Holzberg


Nine geese flying over the landscape far from trees
The ninth symphony resounds in my head from waking
Nine supreme court justices open wounds with their rebuttal
Nine round oranges fall from the way laden tree
Nine sweet roses of yellow mark the fall someone's grave
Nine hot mamas selling hot dogs at Times Square
Nine wayward ants trumpeting up someone's open arm sleeve
Nine sultry snakes looking for cool green respite
Nine fabulous females riding horses in the fine rotunda

  1. Very vivid imagery in this one - reads almost like a page from a surreal children's number book.
