Original Poetry: Still Life with Fruit and Squash

Haunched on today’s half-solved crossword,
      a calico Maine Coon focuses
on a distressed basket – rushes sprung

like gray hairs casting astered shadows
      despite a lamp with low-slung shade.
Glare pierces the waxy vermilion

of apples, contrasts the matte-glow
      of knobby heritage squash
and a half-bulb of garlic –

three cloves unpapered.
