Misty halo moon
black tree branches’ tendriled scrawl
flock of geese sing past

Seagull reels through mist
river buoy flashes red
rain speckles my sight

Perigee full moon
a white, blazing gaze stares down
close as it will come

Oh, the various & virulent spirits we beseech!
We make faces into the great unknown, & hope
the cutting edge of our smile is immortal...

After Japan

My friend asked me for a prayer of peace
but I can’t give words to contain such suffering
and everything I offer is less…

Jet squalls past above
turning the night inside out
I still watch TV

Headlights seen through mist
like choreographed rain drops
lit up as they fall

Riverside oil tanks
grey against a fog-grey sky
the day is fading…
