Edward Burra: The Snack Bar (1930)

August 11, 2017

in haute couture fur she sips black coffee

and savours a sandwich of sliced smoked

ham with delicate jewelled fingers

 

beauty does not speak from the canvas

of her face, wide-angled black striped

eyes and knowing mouth framed by

 

inviting red lips, but each day I watch

as they claim the room and wait for

the touch of her hand before she leaves.
