- The wind sweeps over the Gulf of Trieste
they say it will be storm force by morning
clouds scud with anticipation
rains fail to fall.
- When I was in school, during heavy rains
we spent ‘wet playtime’ reading comic books
cross-legged on the parquet floor
of the school hall.
- Will we be home for Christmas?
I wonder, then I laugh at myself remembering
being home for Christmas
assumes a notion of where home is.
- Dinnertime is like a tolling bell
it’s more a duty than a joy to me
places to set, plates to clear but still
I want you to eat well.
- Anthropocene signalling:
the fires, the floods, the gales
internal screaming, external calm
I want you to live.
