in a garden
a wandering child—
one less daffodil

my rich neighbor —
late at night
he slowly
peels
an orange

spring morning
son wears red, daughter purple —
rhododendrons bloom

Washed by the night

Drizzling rain
Moist evening air
Tree silhouettes
A backdrop
Of fading light

When Night Falls

on a bullet train
I read Remembrance of Things Past
outside my soul's window
a dark blue sea

laughter
a dancing bead curtain
...
beyond
a private place
no locks
yet
nowhere to knock

morning breaks
the songs of sparrows
and the garbage truck
hauling the broken television away

With a small finger, a boy traces
the veins of his father's forearm;
The man doesn't notice.

The silver birch opposite
my flat has unravelled
its bandages. Magpies
scour the loot for gold,
specks of yesterday's sky.

trying to be both bird and mouse
I waver

rhododendrons
drop petals in summer’s heat —

A mango
Perfectly undignified
Runs rivers
Through my goatee
Until satiety

Curled fur tails bask sun
heads turn facing each other.
I count the wind
chime three.

In the middle of a crowd
of people panicking
over whether they'll make it home,
I stop
and catch a snowflake on my tongue.

Short-sighted

Dumped by the optician,
I wake to my TV's cataract;
the city swallowed in fog.
