Open window yawns;
Repeatedly though, the fly
Rams into the glass.


Vacant Lots
Little brown dead weeds
In fields of trash and stone ~
Spring’s dormant splendor.


Thunder claps peal,
Rattling the window’s sash.
The old dog cowers.

Sailing in mid air,
A graceful tandem as one ~
Two dragonflies mate.

Cat copulation;
In the alley dark, wailing ~
Sounds like war, not love.

O bountiful Earth!
Sustain our boundless wont; we’ll
Bequeath you our scree.

False Empathy
Little woodpecker,
Your sweet, staccato drilling
Gives me a headache.

Watch the kudzu grow,
Draping the boughs of the trees
A pernicious green.
