Gulf Stream

Drop the weapons in a pile

shed the skin of the past

there is peace to be found

between a rock and a hard place

 

there is a crack in between two rocks

a void within a universe

that is found through warm air

and ocean currents

 

An elderly woman wading

in bottle green seas

searching for Serpentine stones

on St Columbus Beach

 

Gulf Stream grasses

the sweetness of Paspalum on tongue

she hears ancestors laugh

in the corners of her ears

 

It is me she hears

hers is mine and I hers

these Ancestors of the future

and ghosts of the past

Raven

There’s a Raven

with a broken wing

and a limp

that lives in the depot

as I head to unit 637

to the door of each bus

as they head silently to work

 

Like an unseen escort

bright in the sunshine

black and blue

and shiny
