dandylion fields

yesterday was good,
every bloom was blooming every one
and the birds all called out

up not far north
the fields full of dandylions in different stages of life
adulthood and old age,
full of yellow
and the round perfect puff of fairy clocks,
just waiting to tell the time,

after something
high way and super malls,
dispite it all a family of geese
hmmh, this looks like a good spot...

i am thrilled at this encroachment
of nature with its sweet nerve
and awesome resilience
trying to keep it beautiful,
dispite our uglification

one rule, no pesticides on lawns
has changed the landscape,

and now if you excuse me
i must pick a few dandylion leaves
for tea

urgent crumbs

a sense of urgency nudges me to write words
string a whole set of wooden worded beads together

in the toaster
in the drawer where no one goes

i see a portrait painting in browns of frieda and vincent
he and she preferring the sun

little piano songs
under the piano sound different
dancing in a deafway full of body and vibration

not knowing

drinking dregs of tea leaves

stepping on the crumbs

one day real soon
i'm gonna bake a cake
chocolate and gooey
no crumbs


delicious thick slabs of the stuff
i will have you all to tea
and cake
like the black forest only up north
with filtered light

today's reason

9:38 am
the living room,
hall way,
all need cleaning


hmmh they still do
that's the whole apartment

the kat box scares me
and the stains in the toilet
what the heck

i know
i should
i will

just sharing
that can't be bad

the studio too
can't see the surface of any work space

what happened
living i guess

pulled into details
the right shoes
the colour

reading materials
good television

yes i will

the deadline

the time
the weather
all those things

for doing something you would rather not

where to find it
when to look

under the sofa cushions

cough up that button
that spring onslaught of sunshine

that hurts the eyes
and saturates

yep that glenn gould thing again
this change of season


thank full
for cloud cover

and walking with words
strung along
one after another after another

i have things i want to say

yes i hear the hamsters cage need doing too
and tonight's dinner for 3

laundry is done
that's one thing

a.d.d. you think
allergic reaction
to sunlight?

i have so much to tell
about the fruit market boys

and the colours in cloud

and the way the grass grows in patches
over at the field in the schoolyard

and the abandoned cheese string
that became the ant condominium

and the word condominium
and being 7

and lost in space

and letters
and shows
and friends

and my breakfast

and all that


got a few things to do now
i will begin in the living room

sweep clean even under the rug..
