from “AntiqueWhite Rain”, Kendra Steiner Editions, 2009.

Still hanging round those one-minute beatniks
making love for an hour or so
blowing their out of tune saxes
feeding you random lines on affection
dreaming of perfect confusion
where skins & woods birds dive
sketching your ideal graffiti on water
expensive hot Spaniards
serving rare breakfasts
in the last year’s 50 mark sun
African paintings sleep
baby oceans breathe
swarming china poems
in white beach sands
under the second-hand surface
