Resting between lines
odd lift over left eye squint
uncertain tuning

Evening Scene

Promise of permission
to ask and follow
stay with me awhile

It may storm
in the night
that's alright

Faded day
anchor here
among rose and blue

Wistful whisper
of wavelet rocking
the boat

The Bridge

Dinner on the porch
text news to the young:
bridge just collapsed

Soon, and again
calls from anywhere
"Are you OK?"

Been across so many times
like so many others
some every day

She missed it by minutes
we heard today
another OK

We cannot know
how hard not to hear
that simple word.
