Pickles for Adam

(on the occasion of our meeting and bridge crossing)

Vinegar still rhythm
Sounds in parallel
Sticks shove and
Pucker.

Twiddling stone across
Steps to below regions
Glass smoothly to
Airwaves.

Pentatonic organum
Slides the rails aside
Bringing touches on
Reedlings.

Air patterns float around
Silent eyes and finds
Lowly tones with
Grains.

Fermented time brings
Succulent and sprung
Rocks melting or
Clicking.

Repeat and distracted
Silver round reflective
Cover glimpse for
Shakers.

Wooden spike and leather
Salient table top runner
Up down swideways for
Dripping.

Finally ice in clacks
Slides and carousels
Rotations wax and be
Poetic.
