7 Fragments

by Peter Newton

my dead friend / she would also like / how I refer to her now


wind-whipped leaves / part of me / too tender for this


I row out / to see how / life looks from here


second day of June / birds unbothered / by numbers


a few things / left to tell you– / the hummingbird’s perch


Monday morning / shaving off / my clown face


a road-trip heart / in a hermit’s body / we each say a few words
