Another New Poem


I slapped a gnat that settled
on my face. Such a short life.

In many respects my own is similar

Apparently, that ghastly Chile
earthquake shortened earth’s
day by one-millionth of a second

Unbelievable, the molten rock
underneath this planet’s slim crust
on which I labour, love & laugh

it hurtles through space

Passing by, it is never
finished & nothing ever is.

Harvey McQueen
