Excerpt from these works

Poets are to thin on the Ground

Did you write this
the man
with the grey hair
asked
I did
a short reply
busy
move on
no time to spend
time

he
took his coffee
and with a laugh
with his partner
went about
his business
food and drink
rapid repast

later
as I drank my own
through the dirty window
I saw him again
he crossed the road
and returned
through the door

this is mine
I would like you
to have it
the book's cover
felt alive
beneath my hand

there are not enough
he said
we are too thin on the ground
he took my book
and
as he left we agreed
yes - poets
in this land
are too thin
on the ground
