I'll write a poem every day, might be tiny but it'll be complete.


Two lemons from the local market sit in a handmade terracotta bowl – or perhaps it's a saucer – on the engineered stone work surface of this kitchen./ The lemons' yellow against brown earthenware bring back 1986: our last Greek island, the rocks we lay on all day, between swims, sex in our dim room, and later/ on a terrace, scoffing dolmades drenched in lemony olive oil. Wild thyme in the air, hair stiff with salt. I scratch a lemon and sniff.
