Oliver Hutton, “The Bower”

orange line

The Bower

Three men in different parts of the world.

One, in a leafy shelter, kept bending forward at the hip.
The second, in a boudoir in a castle, played a violin.
The third, in a cottage, held an anchor.

None knew each other, but all thought the same:
“What on earth are we doing?!”

 


Oliver Hutton’s previous publications are three poems: “The Plant Whisperer” in Clementine Poetry Journal (October 2015), and “Re: Spectre” (January 2016) and “If” (April 2016) in Clementine Unbound.
