June Wentland: a poem



jerry-built –


twitchy, transgressive,

serotonin-dip

weeks doing normal blokey things

fork-lifting hours onto days

growing retro –

like apricots

in a 1950s dish spooned from a tin

with condensed milk

new and remembered from flower-bordered-lawns –

taste and texture

an edgy aesthetic

the way red sings with pink.



June Wentland lives in Corsham, Wiltshire but originates from Hull. She has had poetry published in magazines such as Stand and Poetry Ireland Review and in several anthologies. Currently, June also has a poem on the "Poetry Archive Now! Word View 2020" YouTube Channel.
