up bearing witness
this blood moon tango with light
enso in the stars

tears fall with the chants
honour but donít privilege
strong winds are fleeting

little red maple
touch of drag with winter hues
more wink than prayer

Blooms

China banned the letter N
so parts of me are disappeared

blooms swell between us
the red different each time

parts of me are disappeared
you scare me, so sue me

the red different each time
when we donít police

I scare you, so sue me
sometimes I forget my lines

when we donít police
blades open and open

sometimes I forget my lines
there where the empire cracks

blades open and open
who knew this was hunger

there where the empire cracks
China banned the letter N

who knew this was hunger
blooms swell across us

Dragon flies in drag
over river spits,
mustard grasses,
tissue wings
zim hummering.
Their needled bodies
threaded beads, azure
hyphened by ebony
to the period of their
tails. Tumid eyes to tips
to eyes, waging circles
where another begins,
where mist and sigh,
early sky shaking its wings,
water below splitting,
spreading hemispheres
a slow spinning blue
mouths
consuming
tails
consuming
mouths.

(earlier version published Antigonish Review 151, Autumn 2007)
