#inktober 1. POISONOUS


This is so hard! I’m used to the editing freedom of the keyboard. Writing by hand is a whole nuther thing. Already I want to edit and re-arrange, erase and change. But here it is. Raw writing from today’s preoccupations.


Pleasure can heap up in small piles

Once the autumn leaves make ruffled

Islands on the grassy

Sea — no leaf-blown tsunami,

Only summer’s loose debris flying

Nowhere and everywhere at my feet.

Over the equator in Indonesia,

Unbounded nature snatches up souls

Survivors can never rake from the sea.
