SHADOWPLAY*

The Hawk Kitchen 8:56pm

I’mma keepin’ M’Diamond

wiv Its Cloudy Arrow

I know It’s Mine

for All My Time

I know which side It fits

& I Love It like

It’s goin’ outta style

*Joy Division — Ian Curtis (1979)

THE RETURN

Hawk Point Road 2:50pm

The Sun Shines

a variegated halo

over the southern tip

of Cape Sable Island

the land I live on

where I confide

in very few

& get My Groceries

on the notes of Joy Division

And Joy Division Played ATMOSPHERE

The Head of Hawk Point Road 3:22pm

I have been chasing

down The Sky

along Hawk Point Road

I saw It fall

to The Ocean

in snowy squalls

I got back in My Car

& drove to The Head

where sun rays burst through

above a frayed Canadian Flag

blowing over a contemporary

grave yard

TELEPATHIC REPARTEE

The Tomato-coloured Couch 12:55pm

You stood out in Sobey’s

Today

darkly dressed

pensive and lean

You had on rectangular

dark glasses

above Your narrow chin

standing in line

with The Rest Of Us

You became My Newest Member

of Joy Division

Don’t Walk Away, In Silence*

The Tomato-coloured Couch NOON

Gold is too warm

Silver is tarnished

like The Humanity

it represents

The Cold Truth

of believing in Our Selves

Our Bodies

Our Aspirations

*Ian Curtis, Joy Division
