  • Poplars line
  • far too long a short walk
  • to the lake

  • Train switching tracks
  • never finishes...
  • world spring run down

  • Anubis, white-eyed
  • in obsidian, glares —
  • pinned to his wall

  • Moon silver
  • the samurai’s hilt shakes
  • with his exhale

  • Spotlights in the clouds
  • I’ll wonder why, for awhile...
  • this spring night

  • Our drummer’s sick...
  • watching tiny bubbles climb
  • the water bottle

  • Waning moon
  • sets slowly past my cell door...
  • cold enough for socks

  • My old school
  • rubber stamps, expired years
  • scattered in a drawer

  • War’s over...
  • doodlebugs stuck fast
  • in a treacle bucket

  • A gnat lands
  • dead center in a ring
  • left by the beer can
