cross currents

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 3:36 pm

I’ve been thinking about conflicts, queues and water closets today.

Until my piece is finished, you can enjoy the poetry of Peggy Willis Lyles:




a trickle

from the wellspring —

clearing sky








cold wind lifts one corner

of the pall










cross current—
in the cooler
blue crabs fight





“processional” & “cross currents–” from To Hear the Rain (Brooks Books, 2002)

“a trickle” – Upstate Dim Sum (Special Guest, 2005/I)



the pretty girl’s

sunburnt face —

straw hat on my bald spot
