Meditation

I don’t mind if it is an acorn, a plum, or a baobab fruit. / They are all fruits.

Allow that which does not belong / in your heart to find / its way out.

The Open Night

You, this forgotten shadow, / That rests in a flowering memory / Is the kiss of root and berry.

Gums

Your fungus / begins to / age inside / its new / porcelain cage.

drifting

i would ask you things / and you would only look / upon me / and spit on me softly

Floating Waste

the salty sea breeze blows / McDonalds™ wrappers swirl / infants scramble / some nestle in the bin liner / others look for scraps
