one sultry day
sinks into the next ...
a mud dauber
intent on mating
with its reflection

of clothes too small …
when will I realise
the hollowness
of this bloated ego?

at the county fair
a year older –
the cocoa-colored ponies
the honeybees under glass

a butterfly
on the doctor's table
with thin needles
in my flesh

  What a trip to be you –
to climb my creation
to see it from all angles
to have it sustain me –
spider wrapping your prey

space George Swede - Canada

in the sounds of traffic ...
she offers
a string of wilted jasmine
and her toothless smile
