no stars

no stars but a few small holes in the arbour roof



  1. I love them all! I think you're a master of this form. It's a great pleasure to come here and read.

  2. I noticed the reformatting - thought 'Oh, he's gone all one line on us' and then thought yes, this works, it gets that one thought, one breath, one moment thing much better.

    Then I come here to comment and see your explanation. Thanks for sharing the process as well as the poetry. We all have those moments of not quite crisis. And often they come before a shift in writing focus or approach.

    Love this one though - we make our own stars, even if they are just bits that are falling apart.
