Imaginary gravity

on this rock
round this star
through space and time
I pretend to orbit you—
another hurtling speck

There are thorns all around us,
and everything withers and dies.
Look! Here it is! It’s so red today!

Here

we have been down every corridor
each door we open
holds a different scene

but we have been
through it

we search for an exit
from this maze
a door to some new place

but it is endless
here

Dream woman

A woman floats through a dream.
In your dream, she dreams of you—
in hers, another floats dreaming through.

Are you seeing anybody?

I saw you
and looked again
I turned my head
and followed you
you were somebody
and I wanted you to see me

you saw me following
and looked again
you turned your head
and followed me back
I was somebody
and you wanted me to see you

we found ourselves
while following each other round
now we look
and see nobody
looking back
—how beautiful!

two complete nobodies
at last!

No more luck

Another mirror in a thousand pieces—
sweep the floor clean,
leave the wall bare.

Our legacy

Human will
etched shallow;
lines cut straight
across Nature’s
undulating waves—
indifferent
to calculus
—vectors of great desire
swept away
in minerals.
