spend all day in bed
wonderfully expansive
tedious more likely

i hang up my coat
in keeping it off the floor
home and coat honoured

drive and meditate
on highway tires rumble
cut through the cold air

one moment at a time though
look, space for busy

warm feet, a cold floor
when they meet i feel alive
why prefer slippers

posenger day two
a fixed gear fantasy camp
ipod and traffic

posenger, perhaps
annual french catalogue
an afternoon's ride

chain ring teeth dig in
river quiet, ripping heard
favorite jeans, no more

light spills through window
sun rises earlier now
and stays longer too!

neighbourhood changes
laura secord hummer sits
is there no safe place

Sunday, January 20, 2008


yes, tired legs again!
well earned food nourishes me
racing year ahead?

raccoon summer home
today fetch shit and plug holes
my attic no more

kenya horrifies
an old man clings to power
his thugs roam the streets

lingering in bed
the coming day rests also
here it is with me

parsed and divided
fractured elements cohere
emerging renewed

hara curry

even moderate
this race dishonours the food
among friends we dine

parking's always a premium downtown

500 grams of plate: 600 grams of food. i was asked to establish offering size, and despite the mythologizing that has clouded last year's race, this plate is not far off that mark.

paddy, clearly awestruck, witnesses vic's capable handling of the third plate.

dave, suprising many, dispatched a third plate with prowess.

our gracious host serving complimentary sambuca!

jonny benson, always a crowd favorite, would be destroyed by this ill advised third plate.

tomek stunned us all and apparently himself with a third plate.....

.....30 minutes later, and with nary a dent in the plate, tomek tires of the attention. looking on, in the background, our honorary captain.

fortunately tomek parked his bike on the upper deck because bending over for his bike after 2 pints and approximately 2.5 kilos [5lbs for our southern brothers and sisters] of food would have proven embarrassing if not fatal.

jenniece beryl larsen [nee; sagsteun]

longview alberta, summer '07.

as cold as this day is
you passed away, twelve years now
a loss for this world

owen asks of you
you would have liked her, i say
and he understands

all those sunny days
the promise of some were lived
no bother the rest

local events calendar and 01.14.08

mister dr at last year's 'hurry not curry.' looks as if conditions will be similar for tonight's revisiting of that inaugural nordic cross event. this year dubbed by the talented editor as 'hari curry,' and introducing a weigh in procedure for plates of food, tonight's race should prove to be an instant classic.


sun rise, frosted tree
beautiful matrix of light
how bitter the cold

grizzled no razor
with its grey to show my age
vanity no less

post hiatus post

when is haitus not: perhaps when it is as afterthought. with forethought i intend to offer, daily, something deemed shareable.

over the break i have been reading and writing. i will share, to kick things off, three hiaku from last year.


killer behind gun
believe you redeemable
very difficult

front yard scrimmage:

great force soccer ball
window's resistance meagre
shatter crash tinkle


in summer forget
there is a cold here that kills
turn and face the rain

thanks for stopping in.
