Eskimo

May 18, 2014

I come to you like an Eskimo

On the last remaining ice floe

when the icecaps have gone

.

I come to you like an astronaut

Who has lost contact with his ship

And floats towards the sun

.

Displaced and disembodied

Alight with hope

My mother

October 17, 2013

 

My mother was beautiful and stupid and clever

Poetic and selfish, misguided, perceptive

Useless with people, terrible with men

Sentimental, not loving

Adored, not loved

Contradictory, direct

Fallible, impetuous

Reluctantly, I suppose, only human

Spirit me away

September 8, 2013

 

Spirit me away

 

I whisper as I watch you play

 

I know you see a better world

 

Spirit me away

Father

November 29, 2012

 

Do I do anything of which I would not wish

 

My father to approve?

 

The way I walk or where I walk or when?

 

The words I write the words I say or think?
