Kanata, Ontario, Canada


Dilly-dallying over a drying creek bed

Twilight
driftwood
half-submerged
bending . . .

as shadflies orbit in ardor over fetid fish
and pissenlit parachutes rise, only to fall
with vesper’s tempo

my life-line prickles under rasping sand:
here Dali’s waxed moustache taunts me
while painting over

my elderly fisherman’s wrist to disclose
with his mocking eye, my niggling double
bind: man-made time.
