Cedar Cutter


a fat bellied mosquito

shaking on a canvas wall

inside, a rum cask and pipe

asleep by flour and sugar


his wire beard

brushing against a shirt pocket

gold coins in leather


a dingo sniffs the campfire

trotting under a dozen leafless trees

hollow-tap, crocodile skin bark

monarchs reaching to a winter star


shoulder muscles at peace

a toss and dream of a distant Alice

and a vision of spring;

red leaves on the Cedar
