31.12.13 ii

enjoy the wonder
each generation in turn
grabs their camera


corners never warm 
a patient draft lays in wait
moved by warmer air

devices of consumption 

no matter how fetishized or supplicating
their narrative of personal empowerment 

are not tools of production

return from the dark
that is what we celebrate
longer, lighter days

to write beautifully
as the written i just read
a perfect labour

happy seventeenth
the world is your's my dearest
and better for it

soon to be shortest
our days by precious minutes
goodbye long, cold nights

the effort will warm
into a cold dark morning
with shovel i go

under osborne street bridge
momento heart in a box
snowed upon, abandoned

[my run continues
 'if i had a camera'
 hiaku issues forth]

now spread toward woods
picked apart by passerby
any piece find warmth?

i rarely stop by
too much preoccupation
all this busyness

snow geese like commas
arched back of the tawny beast
magpie's cobalt blue

Sunday, October 13, 2013


i cannot find my picture of birds alight; fallen leaves instead

 shifting amorphous
 air, land, or bird's volition
 heart, box, circle, square

in from a cool morning
this summer's sole tomato
destined for my lunch

and the river's dream
pulling gently in the murk
seeps through bedroom walls

Sunday, September 15, 2013


under windswept trees
backing other morning sounds
how many sirens

Saturday, September 14, 2013


at six thirty five
the crow outside my window
woke me from a dream

Friday, September 13, 2013


clear blue sky above
is that, in itself, enough
yes, i suppose it is
