Allan Lake

Law of Gravity

Through lattice & leaves
in subdued café light I
observe her,  engrossed
in her magazine,
nibbling a french fry, dipped
in something moist, adherent,
unaware someone
has quietly entered
her energy field,
orbits round
that heavenly body,
of her irresistible gravity.

Originally from Saskatchewan, Allan Lake has lived in Vancouver, Cape Breton Island, Ibiza/Spain, Tasmania, W. Australia, and now calls Melbourne home & retreats to Sicily often.
