...leaves for luck,

Her eyes distantly

Dreaming while I

Made up stories.


We ran together

Holding hands

Up and over

Round and down

In front and behind

The hills of the Hollows

With the spirits

Of the children

Of the Bridgefields

The boys in Eton collars

The girls in long

White dresses with

Pails of milk.


Even the Hollows

Are gone now

The Go Kart’s Stadium’s

Wire mesh set in concrete,

Placards round the concourse,

The Readymix fact...Read More

...eep, soft-footed, black-nosed sheep--
one by one going up the hill and over the fence--one by
one four-footed pattering up and over--one by one wiggling
their stub tails as they take the short jump and go
over--one by one silently unless for the multitudinous
drumming of their hoofs as they move on and go over--
thousands and thousands of them in the grey haze of
evening just after sundown--one by one slanting in a

There was rock to the left and rock to the right, and low lean thorn between,
And thri...Read More

Of passions forest-shy and forest-wild, 
And delicate delirious merriments. 

As a moth beats sidewise 
And up and over, and tries 
To skirt the irresistible lure 
Of the flame that has him sure, 
My spirit, that is none too strong to-day, 
Flutters and makes delay, -- 
Pausing to wonder on the perfect lips, 
Lifting to muse upon the low-drawn hair 
And each hid radiance there, 
But powerless to stem the tide-race bright, 
The vehement peace which drifts it toward...Read More

...ople put their backs into it going up the steps from me 
Into the living room through the kitchen down the back stairs 
Up and over a hill of sand across a dust road and onto a raised field 
Of dunes we were gaining the rope in my hands began to be wet 
With deeper water all other haulers retreated through the house 
But Payton and I on the stairs drawing hand over hand on our blood 
Drawing into existence by the nose a huge body becoming 
A hammerhead rolling in beery shallo...Read More
