New Poetry by William G. Davies Jr.

Labor Day

Water in the pool
is murky, still.
The pump off.
Marigold petals flitter
beneath the surface as Koi.
A diving board
splays the end
where once she cleaved
to her freshly risen breasts,
gone, but for clods of grapes
basking, as is their way
in slanted light.

- William G. Davies Jr. 2014
