this simple life is not
the
buckling banks
beneath
me

sea tossed and torn away

this, another round of
flotsam accumulation

grief surged, spent is
surf's phlegm
or river's hem

isn't picturesque this

mudlarking



there isn't
a lost or a bust
but a plus
to soul ending worry gone
now it's just
and tales
are

Interdependent communities raise out of suffering and death. - Ernst Mayer






last quarter, orionid aftermath


revising memories of memory

integrating
the single human hair
that is our history

into this reflection of falling light

which leads back
into the light
that left us here.

and

entering

extends

as it is moved

moving

outward



a raptor spurned, turns away
as crows murder fish

grebe and grey heron hunt as seine and spear

cormorant collapsing into river

a roost,

trembling wing-fluttering boughs and branches

waking, as rivers do


along water

(three siphons)

a Thames digger near Tama

children arrange stones and pick grasses

an ancient woman and two old men
gather walnuts

(two)

fat tick and black butterfly

egret

careful among the wide awake
you step the stream or
wing a short distance.

we, surprised by your
close yellow feet,
keep walking

three eyes, midnight, clay, sea
a channeled triangulation
above water
