The Crow: A Summer Renga (part ii)

Renga part ii- CLK

*

he sets back his watch
one hour
to save himself

*

three hairs on the pillow
give her away

*

one night stand
the weeds in the garden
nameless

*

city workers
the sisters will not reconcile

*

at the altar
the complete absence
of prayer

*

an act of defiance
her perfume lingers

The Crow: A Summer Renga (part i)

Ashley, Cindy and I have teamed up again to write a renga to celebrate each of the seasons in 2013. And already the excitement is building between us! We are also hatching some other exciting plans at present, so stay tuned. For now, the first six links in our summer renga, ‘the crow’.

the crow
has a song for it
summer heat

*

the drip, drip
of humidity

*

they gave up
because of the highway
silverfish, so soft bodied

*

on the front stairs
nothing but your shoes

*

autumn moon
your side of the bed
empty

*

shoppers notice lights
already  turned on
