Week 18: tadpoles!

wee commas racing,
darting between rocks, tricking
fish with silver backs

Week 17: whoops, i missed week 17!

where did the time go?
was i chasing tadpoles or
simply in a daze?

suicide at a funeral, kirkuk

forty-two people
laid down by a trip-wire vest
and an empty heart

Week 16: brain, brain, go away

mystery scent, a
synapse snaps to attention:
i'm a little girl

sounds of spring outside my door

chirrrrrr-krrrrrp chirrrrrr-krrrrp krrrrp
bubble-throated frog sunning,
singing to a friend

Week 15: ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, sweet relief!

i can think again
the knocks have stopped knocking, the
voices stopped voicing

Week 14: in appreciation of one of my favorite rock poets

like a martyr, words tender
and excitable
