Can’t let go of you

Can’t let go of you
bottled like a model ship
my watery friend

Friday night challenge

Friday night challenge
to stay awake for longer
than my brood of kids

Woke with a headache

Woke with a headache
but I did not drink last night
and now ask why not

The rotting gum leaves

The rotting gum leaves
make a menthol compost smell
Brings to mind the coast

Lights are on outside

Lights are on outside
on both sides of my home they
project leaves inside

Neighbour’s motorbike

Neighbour’s motorbike
changes gears with little revs
up the sleeping street

History’s a host

History’s a host
ideas are like viruses
living on past us

Voices through window

Voices through window
overlap each other with
Italian speech

An unseen forest

An unseen forest
is not an analogy
when there are no trees

Mint and ginger tea

Mint and ginger tea
tastes a bit medicinal
good for whatever

Look up from below

Look up from below
and see each breath rise to break
out of the bubble
