The horse I am now
a slowly plodding swayback
will take no riders.
walking backward through the door
not even knocking.
Into the petal
of the rose the hornet strikes
a familiar pose.
–Frog on the Bay
What things seem to last?
Streaks of light in morning mist
laughter on the lake.
With my blackthorn cane
I point to where the moon should rise
and sure enough it does.
Old age enters on stage
he is torn and oddly frayed
and says his only line.
