haiku: 13 July 2021

awake to the rain
the van feels like a cocoon
in which I’ve transformed

haiku: 12 July 2021

the wifi is slow
I’m trying to use it as a
lesson in patience

POEM: talisman

talisman

I met a little boy with your name
he caught me by surprise when he said it
I’ve mostly avoided using your name
as a means of moving forward
but other people have it
the name itself has only the power I give it
so I called him by his name quite a lot
as I left he told me he loved me
I don’t believe in fate
or in a higher consciousness
but I’m smart enough to be grateful
when the universe sends me a gift

haiku: 10 July 2021

a very good sign:
when you step out of the van
and your friend’s in Crocs

POEM: don’t you

don’t you

I met Ally Sheedy
back in the 90s
in a Borders in Tucson
she was buying books
I was the cashier
she’d always been
my favorite of the
Breakfast Club kids
now here she was
a few feet away
play it cool?
say something?
this calculus
repeated over & over
for all the years
of my life
play it cool?
say something?
