The Lamp Boy
Christmas
Night. Walk one
end of town to the
other. The old
lamp-boy says the
best thing is no-one's
about on this day. In the high
street, yellow fog. The
shops, houses breath
out.

The Black Cat
Black cat,
all cloak and fangs, cascades down the long
shadows of the stone garden wall. That
pantomime villain, skulks in the wings as a
swing-seat slowly arcs under a fat
man vacantly chewing a cold and
congealed roast chicken leg. The sun's
doing nothing...

Sack of day-old doughnuts, fifty cents. Barnyard gnawing vineyard brush. Boys smoke whatever’s at hand. Found butts. Dead leaves. Horse shit. Cross that desert, cross my heart. And that’s the end of it. Exce...

Let The Wind Shape You
The trees
bend to fit the ridge. They grow,
as best as they can. Deliver
dark leaves and let the
wind shape the
branches. You put
your roots down. So now, let the
wind shape you.

The First Electric Word
Bill drove
home from the refinery. He could still see its stacks smoking in his
rear-view mirror as he crested the final hill before home. At the top
of the hill there was a track on the right. On impulse, Bill tugged

Gentlemen Of The Road
It all
comes from work. No getting round that one. The Devil finds work for
idle hands. So she must be the Devil because I never say no. I buck

The Third Arch
Cross the
county line, a road and high wall. Here and
there parts of the wall have
fallen, tantalising glimpses as to what
lies on the other side. But
travelling at sixty and looking out the
passenger's side window on a road
that curves like a racetrack is ...
