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

 

 

 

 

 

 

processional

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
