1.

NOTE IN A BOTTLE



the saucer of the teacup
holds the secrets of the tea;

knows nothing, tells all
wrapped in oolong
brewed in water
from a kettle on the fire
in Baba Yaga’s kitchen,

once upon a time.

2,

GERONTIAN REVISITED



an old man in
an old suit
and dirty socks, 
sits on the rocks,
waiting for rain.

***
3,

THE WIZARD’S LAMENT



neither wheels nor circles
within the wheels and circles.
but the wheel revolves,
the circle turns,
and the sun sets
on my Emerald City.

***
4,
SUBSTANCES
metal on metal.
glass on glass.
screech upon screech
from glass upon metal
and metal on glass.
      owl screech
      traffic screech
      sister screech
in the tree,
the stone, the earth.
in the leaf,
the anthill,
the beehive.
in the trail of 
breadcrumbs
dropping from 
the Palm of Deborah
along the Path of Birnam Wood
under the shadow of the Son of Man
