The fog comes on
little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbour and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

Finding Extra-Ordinary In My Life
I will not – could not – buy more tea.
I should not – can not – buy tea for me.
I cannot drag it to and fro.
From place to place – this I know.
I cannot buy it from a store, I cannot buy it anymore.
The tea cupboard is flowing out the door.
Get the kettle from the drawer!
On the tea leaves, pour pour pour!
Do not buy it, Susan, I say.
Do not buy it, I so pray.
Stay on home and drink it up.
Use the tea you’ve got in your cup.
I will not, cannot, buy more tea
Not for you, or he or she.
Drink Drink Drink, you must must must.
No more tea! Until just dust!
