Five Poems

Chapbook, designed and hand-printed at the Rita Angus Cottage, Wellington, by Brendan O’Brien (1999).



Last weekend the wind
brought cobalt skies,
bright hills and cicadas louder
than you’re likely
to remember them.
The cats slept in new grass,
leaves swirled
on the lower lawn
and all day there was a deep
white light, and everything
with an edge to it.
