the before
and soon after
of this
thinking
with thin skin
thinksin
aftermath . . .
a raindrop adds weight
to the blossom
before light
the all in all
of dewfall
a poetry
of inner darkness
miming stars
night call . . .
the voice that names
its self
with the owl 
words set darkness 
echoing
mirror lake . . .
an insomniac moons 
the moon
newly-weds
conjugating
verbs
earth altar . . .
dawn lights incense
to idols
breath-strapped pages
stuttering a placebo 
of words
in the orchard
budding with green force
branch dew
a cosmos bloom
hawking by darkness
singularity

democreatures vox populating general erections

frostlight . . .
a spider web full of 
dark matter
shepherd's purse
I shake myself free
of the roots 
snail trail by moonlight
tracing the calligraphy
of present pleasure
 
feather clouds
lifting the stillness
of granite
until
its filled
the emptiness
feast or famine
another grim death hugs 
the edges
Gaza strip
a child hums descant
to the drone
chance cloud
a rain dancer hedges
his bets
flash flood —
streams of consciousness
hook up
wind change . . .
a recruit hoists the flag
upside-down
bright-eyed child
another cease-fire
hazes over
in the heat
ice-water hyphenates
into steam
sails heave
into sight as dawn 
breaks a sigh
lacking colour,
I hew out her likeness
from wooden words
so long ago,
it seems, when wind hustled
last year's leaves
sultry night
the heated silence hints
at a darker love
pristine light
an apple hisses
with beauty
winter blues
my critic harps on 
season words
birth cry!
the water folds over
after the frog
candle light
a shadow hops around
my beer
dead of night
a distant train hoots
its passing
riot control
a cold snap hinders
spring's effusion
sound of rain
as if humouring
emptiness
godless sky —
the hollow man's lament
louder and louder
this winter
an unhitched neighbour
hikes alone
moon gazing —
the light on her face
hijacks my eyes
in blind faith
the seer hires another
set of eyes
centering prayer . . .
darkness highlights the troughs
between waves
vernal equinox —
a girl halves her apple
with a stranger
smouldering gun —
her daisy heaps burning coal 
into his heart
tidal flats —
an unborn babe hiccups
its presence
Promethean night —
what gods are these still
that lie in wait?
late winter sun —
earth air fire water
quickening?
