1 New Poem

Undiscovered Shimmer
Ricochet of signal towers,
kindly bent licorice twist
of steely Singapore’s modernity:

Clean-lined, pressed sheet crisp
and orderly, ever orderly
to choose the broken cycling
spokes of four degrees past
boiling point in summer sticking

Puddle bending, the jump-splash:
let’s go to back page administrator’s
leaning to one side and other,
while you talk out the hasty implication.

What you say in without thinking,
in Tokyo light parades,
in Kowloon market stalls,

where we had sketches made to
full of face, confirmation gowns worn
there, tempting the fate-logic of
dawn’s Dreamtime.
