The Accident

This is the lake in the morning
Where water cold as steel
Whitens your feet
On the aching garden of stones

This is the lake in evening
Where tadpoles rise to kiss
The swirling fatigue of weeds
And the loon’s cry can break your heart

This is the lake in darkness
That swallowed you down from light
And bore your shoes
Like shells
Upon the sand

This is the lake in mourning


December and

December and
The dishes steam
In a square of light
I am thinking
I am thinking that this pan
could spilt your skull
An apple halved
Spilling your sickness of black seeds

I can hear the wheels catch
Inside your smile
