Appointment with surprise


View of woods through a window in Seoul, reflected in a desk
What happens when you place a glass-topped desk by a window with a view

I have just sat down
at my September desk
I have not adjusted to
this frameful of trees
stretching against the sun
and bouncing light
off fat stray cats.

I have kept my first
appointment with surprise
with pine needles bobbing
deep down inside the glass
of my shiny Seoul desk.
What shall I write about?
I had better not decide.
