after putting
the kids to sleep-
singing birds

Thursday, September 28, 2006

looking to the foyer-
his eyes hungry
like mine
meeting a friend-
my lonliness disipates
until he's gone

exiting the bus-
a shaking hand holds
his wife's handbag

pink flowers shining-
in the green shade
a plover pecks
school guidance office-
alone on a table
the box of tissues
last day of school-
coming out of the bin
a student's project

council worker's arm-
where does the dirt stop and his
tan begin ?

late afternoon work
the sun shine fades from the wall-
the room is dark now

basketball final-
the player eats McDonalds
after the loss
exiting the shop
the cold air on my cheeks-
a trolley man swears

children nagging me
as we enter the country -
a bonfire burns red
news of early death
a colleague cuts an orange -
I rethink coffee
