Most of the time,
I feel unencumbered
by the clashings and conspiracies
of colleagues;

both feet several inches outside
of the circle
in which everything seems to

In the art of noticing,
I am, at times, spectacularly inept.

Though I can sit for hours,
sketching and perfecting
the same mouth.

Here at the beach,
the moon brings the sea suddenly
to my toes,
a surprise gift,

and disappears, laughing,
behind a cloud.

Beyond the groynes, a little dog
has chased the red kite too far,

but she has not yet been lost
long enough
to panic.
