From the Freezer

"There is a splinter of ice in the heart of a writer." Graham Greene

On the window-ledge
This morning, in May sunlight,
The plastic bottle
Of apple juice is slowly
Thawing - its beer-brown
Liquid sparkles gently, but
At its heart the ice
Is still frozen: obdurate
And unyielding
And through it a different,
Distorted light shines.
