fumbling for words
i smarten up
with txts
tsk tsk!
forget the elephant 
that never
gr8 2 c u
disremembered

silence
without doubt
new moon
a child screams
"I can't feel my brain"
moonless sky
 
 
from her hair
a chill exodus
of lice
light casts
a new perspective
on loss
light repatterns
my neural pathways
through a stream
in darkness
the slow tolling
of my blood

leaf whispers through the family tree

one last
flutterance
bird song
spring disappears
with the memories I had
of who I was then

slow across a calendar days unnumbered

birth silence 
a bag of bones cradled
in my arms

this rose alacks incentive

dark moon-rise
a swell of emptiness
in bated chests 
polar melt—
a white crossed landscape 
to die for
with this haiku
all the blank spaces
fit together
down fall
everything 
I ever knew
way up north
tyranny becomes
the new clear

foghorns declare the all unclear

drip-fed haiku vi a iv tubed nature

more equal
than each other
summer clouds
 
 
summer expanse
nothing to define it
but my words
death toll
a bellbird avoids
its refrain
bowed by heat
I kneel before 
a cicada shell
twilight sky
a word narrows down
my mind's expanse
in its fullness
the moon drowns
in my son
 
 
swift bloom
on a summer breeze
the diva shits
humid breeze
rumours of snow drift
from afar
thirty degrees
bees hexangulate
summer heat
humid haze
air coagulates
in the light
in this nothing too
godheads lie hidden
by nightfall
our ever-present
unforeseen 
unbidden nature –
is the earth moving
for you too?

on tenterhooks the bated now

first reading
where words lie before
their utterance
acid rain
I drop a tab
of coolness
climate change 
not always 
as good as 
a rest
