The Poem Arriving














An arriving poem
comes like a swell
of tide.

Horizon no longer
joins sky and sea
but bleeds
to mist between.

Written Off
















I am
writing down
pages of words,
words on pages, lists;
in this, my life-sentence,
fingers crab, hands repeat,
skin connects with instruments,
nerves transmit, one way
and another.

Roads Untraveled














You didn’t go;
there is no turning,
only a forest track
where trees bend in secret.

You turned your weary back,
accepted the curious defeat of steps retraced,
accepted having other destinations
where light throws deeper shadows.
