Kerri Shying R - # 211 For Karen K

For Karen K

 do not wish translators  labour
on the right word              meaning
is a thing            I have been along a path
amid the words  I found them all to be
the giddy child
of mouths born in this place or another

stained with a fruit
you can’t get             anywhere

but the small red market by the Olive Pink
Garden              In Alice Springs where

the anninti beans above you
not on a necklace

resist   being words

 as jewelry they have lost their power
seeds no more to grow            
 they hang            pods shriven under plough
