Elderflower

by Christos Polydorou

Drinking elderflower
cordial & water
make me feel
like the poem’s
daughter,
I drink in
my femininity,
I am secure in
my sexuality,
as a poet,
I designate
my androgyny
as the spirit
to guard
the thought
from complacency
to action.
It is all a
part
you play
besides
If it doesn’
t come n
aturall
y you might
need to break
it down
agai
n. Hello d
ad. He
llo mum.

I wanna grow up.

I wanna be a mature poet.


This is literature,


for Goodness’ sake!

Elderflower!
