le Canal Rideau (en hiver)


for Robin (4 February 1998 )

skaters with lanterns
spinning spinning
peeling back the lightless plush
flashing by in bending orbits
and sliq-slaq urish hush
widely casting whirled-up chunks
of shaken firmament

abandoning the pretense
of primordial intent

Happy 21st birthday Robz!
