Cartography

In the chaos of this night shadows walk past:
 try to hold them, but they slip out of my hands.
  In the vastness of the desert (where wind is the eternal master)
life plays a losing game with sand.
I live its confusion, collecting the winnowed remains of some map.
 My progress erases each day…

Synesthesia

The confusion of night is trivia
like finding moon
 among those possessed
by thousands of window panes.
 The darkness pours
 in a glass, the drink tastes
 like night, and wind turns brittle
and inebriated. 

In the morning the sun tastes
like lemon tea,
 and plays shadow dice during the day.
News items pour in
that smell of poorly brewed coffee;
 nearby cafes sell
 cups full of stories.
After the nine-to-five
the moment imagines
rain play harp and conch, riding
 a wind chariot that never arrives.
