I’ll be at The Kingsmead Book Fair tomorrow for two sessions, reading a bunch of poetry and signing books – I really hope I see you there! Click the image below for more info.
i blow on her face
when she is too sleepy
to drink her milk
she’s learned to wave
and she waves at people and animals
sometimes she waves at the trees
when they blow in the wind.
If you want to meet your grandfather
get in a car and head out to the desert
put your hand out the window
and feel the air slide through your fingers
listen to the music pouring out the engine
watch the world disappear behind you
and where the highway ends and the road turns to dust
where the world shimmers and disappears
you’ll find him there
in every quiet breath.
