The seventeenth offering from Ten Pages Press is now available: Comfort and Joy by Andrew Taylor.
A Knife an Axe and a Spade
It lives in its particulars and details
of the housekeeping a few implements
a knife an axe and a spade
a bird in the tunnel painted floor not singing
shelter is absolutely necessary with the first
of April comes the thaw
a walk in the woods to become a friend of the pines
the southern wind picks up speed allowing
for a simpler way of life
once the sun goes down time for a chosen pursuit
the institution essentialness of the Post Office
is all news gossip?
a silent gravity as an apple falls
like a fox in a fable return to earth
