without, would we pray
every sunset a sunrise
huddled, heated homes

a slow that feels rushed
[seven syllables to bridge]
a rush that feels slow

if you have to spend
make today's a conscious act
that's all i got

thank you for reading
fifty visit here each day
that is the average

thank you.

you ravenous snails
a fish that falters and falls
within hours, bones

outside in the dark
river frozen - yet here, inside
a river of light

last game in the house
we roared loader than ti-cats
and we braved the cold

Saturday, November 19, 2011


you talk a great game
like to see you run a block
the shouting parent

deperate wish of yours
anything to make this stop
whistle blow for you

blubber encased heart
squeeze no blood through arteries
scream, your crushing pain

hope your day's well now
vicarious catharsis
godspeed, prisoner

days fused together
long interminable nights
create illusion

slush in the river
herald the coming season
winter close at hand

delicious citrus
a bright spot at year's dark time
first box of many

early to bed, i
to sleep for thirteen hours
and the dreams, the dreams

Saturday, November 12, 2011


as i ran i thought
i must rephrase that hiaku
let us work for peace

11.11.11 ii

wascana, geese heard
and a train in the distance
bright full moon, sun rise


minute of silence
for the fallen and the fighting
let us pray for peace

10.11.11 ii

wet rolling tire sound
geese honk and fly overhead
belly full of thai

are your bellies full
high above regina's streets
as dusk turns to dark


movember the tenth
i don't think i can do this
where is my razor

just wanted to say
not gloating to tempt the fates
but look, winter tires

this day's morning run
rob my fingers of comfort
see frozen puddles

Monday, November 7, 2011


brighter this morning
early sunrise, trace of snow
reflecting dim light

look in the mirror
my father, always moustached
see his face on me

Friday, November 4, 2011


movember the fourth
a shadow above my lip
how long will this last

Thursday, November 3, 2011


so many vistas
all worthy of photographs
and no time to stop

a referendum
before the bankers strip them clean
would we ask for less

Tuesday, November 1, 2011


movember again
so can i, shall i, this year
we'll see tomorrow
