why fall in love…

why fall in love with images

Tobias asked

transportable, lightweight

then why go

why question faith

our mothers crowd the skyline

reflections, said Tobias

just reflections

how prodigal…

how prodigal she is

throws day old blossom on the sidewalk

and us, given to time

so soon as we are born

the Spring will call…

the Spring will call            Tobias said

I will rise in my basket

a mouth-sewn snake

perhaps                             I will dance

where, he asked…

where, he asked
does metaphor end
and Tobias begin

It was warm…

It was warm in the sun,
Tobias recalled,
warm hands
warm face
but I kept a piece of cold inside
to avoid surprises.

Tobias searched…

Tobias searched their eyes
but had no answers
except that some were afraid
some frightened him
and some, he thought
he could embrace

tobias meets a stranger

who was it i met last evening?
i should remember

the air was cold
the sky blue in the centre
orange at the edge

or was it damp?
it must have been outside we met

i remember

he walked at the edge of the sidewalk
close to the trees
he carried a geranium
