Five poems

last in line
his son touches
the casket

our failing cat . . .
I pet him with both hands
as time grows short

frozen footprints
in dying light . . .
with his fingertips
the tracker traces
the contours

you had me
in the palm of your hand
and didn’t notice . . .
collateral damage
of adolescence

from below the horizon
the sun touches
her high-flying jet . . .
my eyes
touch it too

This goldfinch

this goldfinch

perched on the edge

of spring

Two on spring

freshly mown —

a whiff

of wild onion

 

stones in the road

their shadows

blacker than asphalt
