not knowing if the shadow below
is hammerhead or taniwha,
not knowing if I anger or appease him
if tonight is the night I will catch an island.”
— from ‘Wayfinder’
“Her big, sassy hips sway past.
Move on, move on …
She is carrying a peach balloon to a party
that happened long ago.
Never mind, never mind …”
