a note of clay



a note of clay
in the wine I sip
returning to dust

previously unpublished



withered houses
along a side street
early autumn

previously unpublished



in heaven
I trip
over a cloud

I swing in time



I swing in time
with the ticking clock
September rain

the sky reflected
in the office block façade
as free as a bird

I set the clock
one hour back
bearing death in mind
