Annabel Wilson

 (For Toni)

Zen click. Zen click. Zen click.
Knitting needles natter in the corner. We recline
over books and a dusky bottle
around the peeling wooden table at your cousin’s villa , St Saturnin.

The Mistral shifts in, ruffles our papers and
shuffles our hair -
We are happily baffled
by the mysteries and complexities
of Provencal syrah
and of the heart.
