We live

most

in our minds;

where

your words

do not answer

to mine,

and what eyes

have been denied,

we imagine

better

than they

have seen.

I’ve seen a man who has drowned. Found face-down, blotched skin, blue and purple tinge, bruises fading and swollen. Tide had brought him in, water swirling, earth set in its spin. Someone’s everything; feeling nothing for anyone, came to rest as nobody’s anything. 


Play of four,

or seat three,

minus one.

‘Red book’ rules,

from land of 

rising sun.

Hurl the dice, 

with a chance,

half night’s done.  

Trek the maze,

feel the speak,

small talk sum.

Follow gaze,

not deterred,

Long since won.


Draft Box

Journeys into the quiet, from daybreak till night takes day and beyond. 


You ask 

for my wholeness.

Once again,

I say

‘I am scattered’.


Gaze on a real world, 

beyond the darkened windows. 

Pieces less a puzzle.


Fever, fever, skin cold.

Blue lips, pulled in breath.

Ears new to own
