Friday, 24th January

Beneath the ancient abbey gate
people come and go
like snowflakes in June.

Thursday, 23rd January

I enter my silent flat
the most beautiful sound
still ringing in my ears - 
the laughter of friends.

what could be rarer than
these blood-red jewels
faceted like an insect's eye
raspberries in January

on top of the wall
stalks sprout
from hummocks of moss
like pampas grass
on sand dunes

Small stone number 1


Watashi wa Nihon o mawashi teru
Watashi wa Nihon o mawashite iru to omou
Watashi wa hontōni sō omou

I'm turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so

This small stone was brought to you by The Vapors and Google Translate.

Small stone number 2

today my muse
has her eyes closed
her tongue out
and her fingers in her ears

on the black slate floor
a chunk of white gravel
today's small stone

Saturday, 18th January

I hold a piece of dark chocolate 
against the roof of my mouth 
and rub slowly 
back and forth
back and forth
spiced chilli
