If you ask me about late day shadows…

Cover of Planet of the Blind....man and dog....

If you ask me about late day shadows
I can give you an impression—
They are like the face within a face

As with so many things
The fierce beauties…

**

Poets have much to say
About what we never become
Ruin and river—
The threads in life’s coat

**

Speak to the weather
Its the oldest artwork of all
On the street in winter
You can see people talking to themselves

**

I think of Auden’s line: “All we are not stares back at what we are.”
Where is home from here?

**

With people
Come the hours
And the language of hours
But I prefer the first winter
When shelter was all

**

Thinking of Auden in Winter Rain…

Funny man
Raise your little fist—
Time says nothing
Water on your wrist
