little notebook

like that street artist in Ho Chi Minh holding a brush between his teeth no hands to hold a thing

little notebook my molecule now what --

little notebook that field one night --

cid’s red thread knotted once little notebook

every morning little notebook

little notebook lost in garden

peter rabbit squirrel nutkin sparrow bindweed flopsy basil little notebook

autumn – hopeful little notebook

more than you know little notebook

finger prints his little notebook

(nameless no one’s little notebook)

last best hope his little notebook

always poor penmanship little notebook

clouds can’t hurt sky little notebook

his cottage roof his little notebook

little notebook little sailboat

nowhere else now little notebook

spells & riddles little notebook

every lost world come to an end little notebook

chanting away a sea shanty little notebook

before & after alphabets little notebook

someday arctic passage little notebook

nowhere inuit sculpture nowhere little notebook

your spine – extinction’s horizon little notebook

done with sorrow little notebook

~

pick & shovel back to that time

pick & shovel where no one goes

what becomes of pick & shovel now he’s gone

pick & shovel maybe later cave wall paintings

pick & shovel earth still earthbound

pick & shovel all in the breath

pick & shovel out of his mind

spine & pelvis pick & shovel

pick & shovel an xray view

pico pala pick & shovel

life’s autistic pick & shovel

children’s poem – pick & shovel

soulless angels pick & shovel

pick & shovel among those wings
