APAD2019 Dandelion


after the yellow bright

petals wither

powder fluff seeds

wait for wind

set seeds adrift adrift adrift

float where the wind wills

softly land

begin again

APAD2019 these red threads


these red threads

once shouted bright

called to bees

we hide the treasure you seek

come search come find

come feast

go carry our load


these red threads

no longer needed

soften and curl


fall fall fall

into the day and night

shape themselves

to cracks in the bitumen

like it is they that keep the rocks

from falling apart
