5 POEMS - JANUARY 2005

1.
tearing down road
at break-neck speed
a blackbird

2.
must be getting old
even in dream
couldn't stiffen
for girl

3.
starlings gathered
on railway-sidings
dried grass-seeds

4.
weathered garden-shed
looks so right
no need to paint anew

5.
sitting zazen
mouth waters
thoughts of smoked tofu
