17 samhain 2008


metal typewriter floats on a blanket
newfoundland wool knit by grandma
its quieter this way to compose
than metal banging on wooden desk

take art for a walk downtown
the cathedral just sits on the green
its photograph moves but doesn’t see
that it’s bound for an office hanging

the disappointment artist says no
so     so many more times than yes
but it’s impossible to yes everything
just a no shouldn’t mean rejection

walking or driving backwards does
not undo the wish i hadn’t done that
water and wind erase many footprints
but what of human’s destructive hands
