MARCH 1999



look, cat,
your new neighbours moving in:
they have a dog!


Gilles Fabre




Broken man
all day long
splitting oak



Desolation -
for my wife's boot prints


Ken Jones




Leafless tree
in the fold of a hill
leans into sunset



From a bare cupboard
a few noodles, the north wind
a little warmer


Jim Norton




show me,
skinny bird in the nippy wind,
how to face winter


Gilles Fabre




Winter fog
over the river
moving with it


Maeve O'Sullivan




Through the bus window
I opened to hail a friend
this year's first snow


Gilles Fabre




Dismasted pines
their riven branches
point in all directions


Ken Jones




gulls on a beached trawler
all but one
turned to the sea



this street cat
I sometimes feed:
in his mouth a baby bird


Gilles Fabre
