about Cambodia’s
internal war –
without a face
just one more skull

  some men retreated
other men gained ground
the same
black flag planted
everywhere upon the Earth

    In prison
I pointed out the fly strip
with fifty dead flies
and someone said,
They’re us.

to pass the time
a guard at the wharf
flips a coin …
what is he hoping for
what are the odds

  a crow's feather
crowns their sandcastle
a myth in the making
as the incoming tide
reclaims the world

    the temperature soars
from below freezing
to above,
today my winter boots
have wings
