  • Summer’s last party
  • The boy bounces a pebble
  • off his teeth
  • ***
  • Summer dies humid
  • one new note in the klaxon
  • on the fire engine
  • ***
  • Maid in doorway
  • rocked back on bare heels
  • from a spring shower
  • ***
  • My ceaseless fan
  • proves quite mortal, really —
  • the electric bill
  • ***
  • Blue swallow, gone...
  • upon the pond
  • fresh skins of ice
  • ***
  • How soon, this year
  • cherry blossoms — how soon
  • the windshower
  • ***
  • I’ve got nothing left —
  • housefly pivots, sticky feet
  • kitchen window
  • ***
  • That light, this light
  • none of it all shall sate —
  • the firefly
  • ***
  • That cold day,
  • not yet late in the year—
  • persimmons crack
  • ***
  • My head empty
  • those are trees, at least, I think...
  • and somewhere stars...
