left without another cheek to turn 

come, O dogs of war
pave deserts and boulevards 
with our eyes and teeth

retaliate a tale again retold

swan wakes
foreshadowing
cross shadows
rere tuatahi
ko aku kupu 
toku ohooho
 
first flight
my words are
my awakening

long white cloud of self unknowing

midnight tide
the tug 
of the moon
as one
hearts of darkness
beating drums
with this moon
forever is lost
in the moment
ancestral grounds
playing fields of mist
with the dead
musty diary
the you who now 
no one knows
breath forget
slow infolding
night
word by word
breadcrumbs
of no return
wind-tossed tern
waiting in the wings
what is to come

light lessens in half-lives

facebook time
each day stretches 
into two

ever a moebius strip tease

iv drip from a klein bottle

beyond
usury—
bird song
moonlit street
here too
I am
other
