a small spider
in my Chardonnay

gave the seeds some shade.
Legs crossed, you sat there, watching -
glum, clothed and hungry.

in the belly of her mouth
like a fish on a quayside

silent pool

A rain of tender pins
that tack nothing down
rise strange worms
darkness shown
no sign of slowing

Indoor Tan

Sun-burned leaves
crackle and curl;

I remember your hand
clawed by the stroke.

Gnarled hands that have carried
so much
now at rest
