#473. sailing home

May 29, 2011

battens
make hardware list
water on fire
teak oil
fun skies
practice heaving to
knots knots knots
telltales
crooked
broken dock pipes
needs six cleats
brother
walrus
needs to light
sailing home together

#472. became today

May 26, 2011

all the trains
and all the shadows
tunnels of red light green
beams scurry grey grey as ghosts
now we become new york ghosts as well

the sign of the times is the light thru the grate

tender pallbearers
not quite in step 
with all hands trembling 
open 

to forget no light
nor the dark shining
eyes wells sharp tears
open

flowers and earth
molecules in the spring 
time to harvest 
open

a gift from your heart
more than smoke
in the wind to us left here
open
