Another poem from Partake, out shortly from Black Moss Press.

Heft

I stand next to a row of tuk tuks
In the first deluge in a month
The future in Chiang Mai has heft
Is swollen nearly to bursting as
Life drains out and then fills again
On Salt Spring the first autumn rains
Bring out deer and other animals.
Here rain does not stop traffic
Nor street vendors cooking sausage
Only school children on their way home
Duck into a 7-Eleven
The rain welcome
After months of heat
Here the present is fully charged and
Buddha never looks back.
