Keith Nunes lives beside Lake Rotoma near Rotorua, New Zealand. He was a newspaper subeditor for 25 years but changed lanes and now sees life from a different perspective. He's had works published widely in New Zealand and also in bulkier nations. He has been anthologised and commended in competitions (means 4th) and is a Pushcart Prize nominee. His book of poetry and short fiction, "catching a ride on a paradox", is sold by the lunatic fringe.

A Night-time Read

I step out of the heat-pump lounge
onto the deck
and into the winter fridge

at first the night seems blanketed
with morose black veils
but as I adjust
I see the dotted fragments of other worlds
longing to be close
enough to read
the book in my hands
