Unpublished 2021

sun rays

powerless

reflect away

from the frozen

skin of the small pond

.

there no duck is

allowed to swim in days

like these slivers of ice

compacted together

a strange collage

.

reminiscent of abstract art

fish swimming below unseen

The London Hours, 2012

Standard

*
I could hardly believe
the frozen mid tone
that blanked me
out
.
I recall stares as nails
pushing me back
hands hesitant
once
.
It was steps in the night
words over a phone
run fast come
now
.
You state foolishness
pinning down
the wind
still.
