The Racers

August 21, 2018

as mothers hollered

and moths collided

the sweaty, mashed-hair kids

raced once more

through the streetlights’ fresh dots

then said their goodbyes

and pedaled slowly home

not yet understanding

how quickly summers go

spring is drawing near

A Smooth Ride

the road to nowhere

is repaved very often

we love a smooth ride

outside my dark window

a nearby dog howls

at a distant moaning siren

while i meander

through a familiar dream

new light

warms the frosted

window pane

a fluid sun

drips onto

the slowly rotting sill

Peekaboo

Winter peekaboos

through the crack under my door

Spring sits back and laughs
