(Night still young)

122--A Night Still Young

The night is still young (and incendiary) in Lee Ka-sing's photograph. In my poem, A Palm Quickens, the night is moving along rapidly, is indeed hectic with consummation:

A Palm Quickens

she falls back
onto her bed
in a drift of sugar

he stays as vertical
as a candle flame

she has one marble foot
on the sudden floor

both are astonished
at his being
permitted to see her
in this solitude

needful
shiny as a fish
he drinks
just as the water
is running away

she inhales
ocean air
her palm quickens

Coffee and Tea 鴛鴦偶寄

Istanbul

I : A Room with a View

All quiet
Sunday morning rises
Istanbul
Hear call to prayer

Across the Golden Horn
The Valens Aqueduct
Suleymaniye, Fatih, six minarets
Penciling your silhouette

Young Pamuk had another view
From Cihangir
Over looking Üsküdar
Eminönü, Topkapi, the Blue Mosque

Under hustling Galata Bridge
A hundred fishermen compete
The fine art of fishing
“What’s for dinner tonight?”

That evening
We ate a Black Sea turbot
A flat spiky fish
Swam in rock salt

Tabletop Studio
by Gary Michael Dault

No. 183. Ideas. Well, the fact is, he had too many of them. They silted themselves into shoals of indigestible possibility. They coagulated into a bristling reef of notes-to-himself, a reef upon which he was more likely to run aground than to sail into some exotic port of achievement. His ideas were making him old. They came to him now as taunts rather than escape hatches or--as they used to be--intimations of mastery..
