Mage

Imagination
Magic

To change
That way
We view
Anything

(Apparently)

Changes
That thing
Itself
Including too

(Apparently)

That Whoever who ever
Dreamt
Of that viewing
Or that dreaming it

(Pause frame)

Let us go then explore
What Whoever
Inserted that doubt
That gave rise to

All these apparencies

Da capo
Ad infintum

Lost At Sea

LOST AT SEA

Awaken from sleep
Recalling another world
Which one is the dream?

Each breath a butterfly’s wing
Lacy … bearing me aloft

Birdwatcher Watched

BIRDWATCHER WATCHED

Perched balanced and poised
A feathered jewel
Your wordless statement
As you look me in the eye
Leaves me nowhere left to hide

Second Hand Roses

SECOND HAND ROSES

Elsewhere they tell us
Now has already happened
And is in the past

Mirrors (A Four By Six)

MIRRORS

Everything collapses
Global, societal
And private, personal
As above, so below

Unwitting Perjury

UNWITTING PERJURY

Our experience
Is bent out of proportion
By the act of thought

Books

BOOKS

Woke up ensnared, lost in books
Woven of fiction and fantasy

Awake, metaphor and allegory
May offer you a route out

Lost (A Four By Six)

LOST

Another afternoon
Mislaid and forgotten
Let’s go to the pictures
Enjoy a phantasy

A Locum I

A LOCUM I

I’m not sure
That we aren’t
Everywhere
All the time
Just not paying
Due attention
At the moment
With so much going on
And so forth

Amicus Curiae

AMICUS CURIAE

I am happy
To bring you
To the window

But not to tell you
What you should see
Beyond the glass
