cicadas drown out
Schumann’s piano music
breeze spins the pinwheel

mating dragonflies
try car after car; fickle
shoppers at Target

four big crows gather,
majestic in their darkness;
poop, then fly away

haiku: 5 August 2018

grasshopper softly
sits on the mallet waiting

for me to begin

outside the window
a leaf that looks like a face
“hi, leaf, my name is—”

POEM: (untitled)

I pushed through
this birth canal of a week
into a new worldview,
hosed myself down and
cast off the nonessential.
My Target jeans fit
in both the waist
and the legs.

reading Chinese poems
mustard from my hot dog drops
onto the white edge
