The Narrow Way

to the narrow way

the periphery

a flint wall

All At Sea

you all at sea
amid cold currents
that sluice through
the trees

If you could piece together a radio out of odds and ends, say a cotton-reel, cardboard and glue 
Sam Chatmon would play the blues all night long.

Instead, a broomstick lies on its side left by some flighty witch who didn’t want to see the inch or two 
of moonlight that shimmers in our yard.

What you least expect is heat, the winter night to envelope you like a cloak as you step down into 
the shrouded garden.

White light shines as if surfacing from under the ocean.

What Really Matters

Sometimes a song pours 
through a twist of ice water

skewers the receptors
so that you come back
to what really matters

The Dinner Party

Imagine a dinner party, 
say a day and a half before it happens

sweep the parlour
set the ebony candlesticks

the glow glitter from every speck that shines

the chatter will be your grout
the glue on which you’ll lay the pieces
the patterns and shapes
that go someway
to make up the tesserae,
mosaic of your day.
