From all ends of the earth they come,

Mrs Sarah Ott is from the wilds of Alaska and is one of my favourite poets.


Another dark night

the lights warm inside

we’d sit on green metal chairs

beside ourselves and the world.

Another Caramel Macchiato

with a straw too tall for the cup,

but proportions were always odd

in our judgements of the world.

Another one last Marlboro

lit despite the outspoken rain,

calming our hazardous obsessions

making something of the empty world.

Another friend I can’t forget

for better or for even worse

despite its worth, I’m gone

into another neck of the world.~

By the gifted Sarah Ott
