Zooming in on poise

Zooming in on poise
watching myself from afar
being for others

One willy wagtail

One willy wagtail
builds a nest near my compost
two willy wagtails

We size each other

We size each other
after a sniff I proceed
and the dog is won

The signs hang from trees

The signs hang from trees
advertising the season
spring is on the way

I lose my temper

I lose my temper
a series of truths spill out
in front of my kids

Sitting in the dark

Sitting in the dark
unable to move forward
awaiting the dawn

Watching the tension

Watching the tension
wanting to resolve your doubt
conflicting desires

Abject rubbish piles

Abject rubbish piles
our collective unconscious
discarded dreams grow
