Poems

[1]

A constant drizzle

She teaches meditation

Gazebo, concrete

[2]

The gaps between gaps

Being oneness in two minds

Thigh tickled by grass.

[3]

Virginal, playing

At being-hide, goes seeking

My love incarnate.

[4]

Houston afternoon

Spooning underneath the cross

A homeless couple.

[5]

Need a credit card

Tacos–all to take a piss–

Here’s the secret code!

[6]

Gregg: ‘Come on, let’s go!’

Before the dispensary

closes. Greasy hands.

[7]

One day technically

by two hours increases–

Clocks– you betrayed me!

[8]

One Hindu temple–

Milk cow nibbles hotel plant

Prone with legs outstretched.

[9]

Myanmar whisky,

Counterfeited Burmese Days

Depth of appearance.

[10]

No strings with sitar

ringing I sit on my floor–

home, a hotel room.

[11]

Lijiang quarreling

Abandoned on Dali street

Beers with fried mealworms.

[12]

Having a party

with myself. So not alone

I didn’t show up!

[13]

Spray paint, the very

Universe is collapsing—

He brews more “ether.”

[14]

I see a spider

Infinite, I never see

An end. Not afraid—

[15]

Snow flurries in spring,

white grid of the window pane.

Can dry leaves skate, huh!

[16]

What flowers are you

white spots of color through pane

of glass, I’m sweating.

[17]

At the radius

window like a sunburst, wasps!

Thought you were stink bugs!

[18]

Dead stink bug clinging

to the curtain, jasmine buds

heaped with dust like snow.

[19]

A torrent of hail

granules leap like cubic frogs,

stream down the sloped bricks.

[20]

Every drop, a flash

as if there never was snow

Shines on the gutter.

[21]

Cardinals facing east

And west scattered, the sparrow

knew another way!
