published in Ottawa by above/ground pressHello , World !i like the way life collects itself around you . wind & sun . you sayi’m in the mood of the night & then it’s like “ hello world ! ” when our faces touch a touch , like the fetal zone inside a womb where there’s room . warm . womblike , womb life . lifelike . light cast on the dark places where we touch in the night . reprogramming our basic syntax , morning moods our faces , a resemblance of who we might have been before we closed our eyes . blank spaces just there in the where where life collects itself around you . wind . sun . mood . womb . face . we will have been neither happy nor sad like a mother with no hands collecting lifearoundyou .
