Spiral line dances

Spiral line dances
in tight dizzying circles
on a concrete block

I've seen the greatest

"I've seen the greatest
webs of my generation
destroyed by a broom."

Wet light slips from view

Wet light slips from view
bands of red and indigo
the rainbow's edges

A honk-like car horn

A honk-like car horn
interrupts Sunday morning
then softer echo

Famous singer dies



Famous singer dies
and I’m quietly judging
based on songs friends share

"This is fun," she says

"This is fun," she says
while hammering the typewriter
and hearing words made

Figure drawn reversed

Figure drawn reversed
so the sketch of my youngest
became one of me

Moths in the foreground

Moths in the foreground
silhouetted against sky
birds in the background

Noisy gallahs fly

Noisy gallahs fly
in cluttered figure eight shapes
against a dark sky

Smokey like bacon

Smokey like bacon
with streaks of white, pink and red
fiery sunset

Drooping sheoak trees

Drooping sheoak trees
glossy black cockatoos’ food
and spooky sounding
