meandering (text walking in the neighbourhood)


On Tuesday, March 14, 2017 I went out for a walk, meandering around the neighbourhood (The Beltline, here in Calgary) gathering words on route with my phone camera. A few days later I wrote the following poem using some of those gathered words.



wait list


a wounded modifier, the text

like water

partners sound

sets aside knowledge

to pursue urban play


sharing the edge of audible wonder

small moves tap the Beltline

lean against micro memories

to remember a place

a moment


that space of bird song and collision

here, simply delivered
