Three poems by Howard Slater.


Tnoona (1975)

Hardly begin
Add a cataract to sight
Be but a breath away from the end
And stay there stray there

in determined holding
as an almost spoken rising

hover and veer

SBN-A-1 66K (1972)

and the high compliment an
insistent dense tinkle that
statics out a non-melodic cluster
The rational notes of two
patiently try to do along to the confined
randomness of no-ones little bells
Going nowhere but subsisting together
