Good Morning

Good Morning

Good Morning



Soft pillows on a breeze

Roll across the blue drape,

curtain of beyond


We are clung hard by gravity

To the still surface of our world

Imagining. Always a little short


The obvious is always staring

Large and blunt

At my inadequacy


Implacable odds

The bookmaker smug in money

And I in self-pity. In fear


For sadness is lost time

I cannot inhabit that

Not all day. Not every day


So I would rather

Blush beneath my host

And live well in the weather.





I send out daily bites
As nourishment for souls
Is this generosity?
Sharp insights that come from moments
Freshly squeezed. The sap of thoughts
That flounder if they are not transmitted

Throwing out the fishes and loaves
Displacement of all that is mine
Just moments. All that I have
Are they gifts?
These little things mean a lot to me
Harboured as they are in neutrality
Go children for it pleases me to watch

Discharged. My atomic vanity
Simpers. Hoping for traction
Wishing above all to be absorbed
Is this guilt?
For the smallness that haunts
Can taunt in an ironic way
Because I know too much about irrelevance
