a still small body —
even the trees look away
from the roadside ditch

November 07, 2019

we make a deal
to tuck each other in —
night folds itself too


November 06, 2019

in your embrace
I feel my clenched heart relax —
acorns on the earth



November 05, 2019

leaves sparkling with frost —
we listen for the sweet sound
of no mosquitos


November 04, 2019

tonight’s alchemy —
a boy with a book in bed
sounding out the words


November 03, 2019

almost a half moon —
how hasty change feels to me
mired in my grief
