3 Poems by Geoffrey Aitken

for others

the trick it seems
is to sleep on it,
overnight it
in such a fashion
that by dawn
and your rising,
it has disappeared
dissolved and
       you can go about your business,

Minimalism drives Geoffrey Aitken away from the scene of mental unwellness for those without voices. Widely published - locally (AUS), and internationally (the UK, US, CAN, CN & FR). Most recently, 'Cacti Fur' (US), ‘Oxygen’ (AUS) & 'Flashes of Brilliance' (US). Older. He chases suburban congeniality.
