To A Fish Out Of Water


You know your loneliness is final

when the best words no longer comfort

and breath flows neither bitter nor sweet

in your indifference of a desert

whose cathedrals that match your cool are

looming around you like dried cacti.

Your despair rhymes with their stark stare but their

plainness finds no echo in your skew eye.


Brian Chan was born in Guyana and now lives in Alberta, Canada. These poems are from his new collection Gift of Screws to be published by Peepal Tree Press in February 2006.
