Best Poem of Ivan Donn Carswell

In-Between

you caught me in-between
those things I didn’t start
and the few that
simply got away

a dozen red ensconced on
dining table doesn’t mean
commencement of a
monumental drunk

it’s rather more intent
to read each label carefully
before I lay them down to rest

but somewhere in the middle of
a sandwich
planned for lunch and need
to bake tomorrow’s bread

plus espresso machine
prepared coffee
– events
went off the beam

should explain I do
not see these things
as jobs to do but mood effects
which...

Read the full of In-Between

June Thirteenth

If I didn’t mark this day in passing
if I didn’t make this date a part of
solid History I’d fail – a day to fix in
memory and memory will prevail

June thirteenth, Gemini of Mercury
an element of Air – where hunger
for awareness rests, your love
therein is seen a proper reckoning

[Hata Bildir]
