every sunset a sunrise
huddled, heated homes

[seven syllables to bridge]
a rush that feels slow

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.

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

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

long interminable nights

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

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
