 Dusk in Los Quicios by the Town Hall

Harry Houdini fell out of a taxi wrapped in chains,
limbs contorting in all the wrong places,
half-covered by a hessian sack.
A parade of trainee priests swept into view,
singing some ancient hymn,
badly out of tune,
leaving dischord
long after they had walked on by.


Sevenling (In the Barista`s Eye...)


In the Barista`s eye,
the weight of steam is stainless; 
milk a hot emulsion pour.

In the Barber`s hand,
the weight of lather
is emotional froth on the razor.

Gasping for breath, an espresso cups its little death.
