November or December,
I remember

The carpet rough on skins.
Some sins
I have forgot.



A bangle
Given to me
By thee
Over wine
Did mine
Heart entangle
With thine.

Now I carry with me
Something of thee,
For a girl’s bangle
Does entangle
Thine heart
With mine.

Forthcoming Poetry Reading and a “Selected Poems”

On Wednesday 13 March, I shall be giving a private poetry reading, along with several other poets. I have a slot of 15 minutes to fill, and I am in the process of determining which of my poems to read. Thus far I have decided to recite the below poems:




I shall be spending part of my weekend in deciding which of my other poems to read.

Sorting through my work kindles in me a desire to publish a “selected Poems”. This is, I think a longer-term project requiring considerable thought and much burning of the midnight oil. It is, nonetheless something on which my heart is set.
