hawk dives
winter through

every organ


more butter

under frying eggs
the cold calf's cry


mother's milk –

a machine drinks

in the dark

heavy draught

in the pound nets

than the dog

the winter oak full
of starlings

snow clouds

a wasp nest weighs

on a shagbark limb

the coldness of gloves

outside overnight

I shared with you
childhood swing

the half-life
of painkillers
autumn branches

a line of dolls

in the fishing boat

of the sea bass

through a squeeze stile

deer tracks in mud

on the shady side

fallen stone wall

a backup

of oak leaves


through the cries

of migrating geese

a rooster

the sudden shift

in the stars



the dark edges caught

in the cat's yowling

opens its wings
