Someone Famous

Sitting in the Astoria
playing tavli
with Mark.
Nick Cave
walked past the window.
'Did you see that?'
I said.
Mark threw a double six
as usual
and removed his last four pieces
from the board.
'Yeah,'
he said.
'Lanky, eh?'

Epsom Downs

Flat on my back
in a Surrey hayfield.
She's got me
where she wants me
she thinks.
Over her shoulder
a shooting star
sears the smile on the face
of a harvest moon.
