Poems and photos: A collaboration, Part 2

Photo by Joseph Michael

July reopens
like fingers from a fist,
August, September,
pressed tight –
palm against palm,
bumping into one another.

And October collects like
bubbles on the walls of the glass,
mornings slipping into afternoons,
as Monday
gathers itself
in the centre of the room.


The second in an on-going collaboration with the wonderful photographer Joseph Michael — the first was a photo that inspired a poem, and this one began with a poem which in turn inspired a photo…

And on and on and on…
