Two For Nimal


for Nimal Dunuhinga

Cracked Song For Dirty Boots


This tree

grows still

a child's mind

a bedroom window


This house

this window

gone but for

frames crater

now

once was

home memory's

red dirt


O stand radiant-starred late afternoon

O stained stark shadows' black frieze


astonished stooped man

time's wee piss-boy

damp bunk-bed mattress fears


O stand glazed from edges

gaze to bark

vine maps of escape.


Iron shadows

impress long into

wet pit


sun shards

spy glass

throat sore


cracked song for dirty boots


**

Older Age, Basho In Mind


Road gets narrower

eyesight dims

even signs wave


Basho's ghost

guides with ink


HERE NOT HERE


Can't ever cross

Rainbow Bridge


Beneath it

a billet of mist
