New year’s day


Light breaks

above chimney pots

blue light behind grey


Fireworks cracked at midnight

as if fending off invaders

& the house parties swung

along the street


love unfolding over kisses

& moonlight.


Even the gulls are quiet

puppy chews her tail

& out at sea waves break




I’m drowning for sleep

my eyes gritty, my mind on

go slow, this no man’s day


where memory lingers

& wishes might come true.
