Clary Sage

My poor clary –
how I desire you
but you are not wise
opening the womb
drunk again
on sugar & sweat
cascading off your bracts
I snuffle your glaucous pelt
your seed gently drips
into tired eyes
so fresh & clear
Peter Philpott
(From Herbarium, a new poetry anthology. Launch and reading 22 July)
