taken
back into the eternal

in that moment of forever
(as in any other moment)
planets dissolve
stars trumpet their insides
repeatedly
side by side galaxies unravel

Holly

the neighbor’s female and our male plant
throwing stickery smiles across the fences--
an outburst of berries, a fluster
of red bellies and wax wings...

stand-in

F---- you!
announced his voice over and over again
when he, himself, in handcuffs
and face down on the grass
was powerless to do it

conclusion

visiting Greece, Rome
after reading too many historical novels--

here and there it left us reminders, yes
but History is gone

ascent

from the clatter of rain
flapping wipers, squash of water and fling
into ethereal silence
white flakes that veer away from the windshield
float off on a cushion of air
