From The Notices


3

Two squirrels - stop their retreat - test danger
A claw - the whole tensions suspends - about
A single eye - about - a single eye
The point of the poised body - looks

I cannot see you - I am invisible
With my clinging - I am the hiding
The tree is all I need - see
My green bark - it's rough provision - suffices

4

Image idled through the work place window
Bright green - hop and hop - a Magpie
Sunshine glare sleekly flicked from its tail
Reflects - occupations - tied - by a flashing ray

5

A clatter of sparrows shout in conflict
Flying hormones - woven -rattle in the branches
Stop! - Stop! Just stop! - tangled in screams
The chaos of creation - continues in thorns

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
