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!
