A Riverside

Europe has many witch sites, death camps

But outside our Parliament have we this?

A silent sculpture so small it would sliver

The diamond calluses of the narrow hearted.

Where the home-grown Hungarian Nazi’s murdered

Their ain-the Danube still flows, pushes

atween Buda and Pest.

Children, parents flung to their death

Their protection for delicate feet is left.

The grandiosity of Parliament and castle

Whimpers to fit the infant slipper.

GATE

文庫本16冊

When you step beyond your own gate, you face a million enemies.

 

 

During the hardest training it has been safer than the crowded city street

On the Irish Sea in turmoil it has been calmer than a near empty pub.

 

Enemies and chance respect neither rank nor riches

The sliver of black ice or a tool held carelessly can end

All.

 

Integrity of shine and purpose can be its own kamae*

Vibrating thus as a hummingbird before tension.

 

If necessary

Be transformed and facing forward. Still.

While a flounder the size of Edinburgh is found in Falkland estate pond.
