THIRTEEN SEASONS (IN ONE DAY)

II
hanging upside down
a rustle of lorikeet—
mistaken for a leaf


IV
the tide is out
seagulls mine the silt
I neatly sidestep a desicated mouse


VII

in the clinging heat of dusk

a tanker splits

the iron-grey sea and sky in two

XIII
in one ear
and out the other—
the wind blows
