Zen Sex In A Trailer



The trailer quivers.

Her left leg dislodges

a half empty can of beer.


We hear the owl once,

then those crickets again.

It is zen to keep a few loose ends,

feel for the field mouse

and let the owl complete its circle.


On the hill of her one knee

her face lit for a split second

by a passing car

remains the same as ever- a stranger’s.


Let it be a silhouette, an inkblot,

a concept I conceive in kaleidoscope.

The trawler judders the night.

Her leg kicks an empty space a bit wet,

a bit jugged and sharp.
