Images

Next to the sunflowers
on the nun's desk,
memento mori skull.

*

Distressed leaves

of a sinister tree:
seven crows in a field.

*

Full moon shines
through the porch door
onto the midnight coffee-cup.

*

The million wrinkles,
depressions, crags, and creases, 
of Wystan Auden's face.

*

Rough-trousered, shag-bearded,
beer-booted, sausage-breathed:
regulars at the Old Dutch Treat.

Good images in both poems, and an economical use of descriptors.
