late august yellows

late august yellows

bring early september jitter bugs

spritely leaping

from my eyeball 

to my fingertip 

and to the arch of my foot

the tides are shifting!

the vessels are swaying

and red leaves rock 

this way and that way

on the water's surface

on the lake pt. II

thick undulations
rise and fall
like sap
like syrup
licking up in laps
a time when
limbs can grow leaves
and breath is sweetly savored

tidied sidewalks

sometimes things just don't match up
at least not at first
like mowing the edges of overgrown headstones
where the weeds sprout and the grass grows long
just to come back a week later
to see those leafy limbs pushing back
like sweeping fallen petals and cig butts
from one end of the sidewalk
to the other
but sometimes its just about doing it
or doing something
you know?
wrapping your fingers around that contented feeling
like you have control 
over the weeds
or petals
or cig butts
thinking that maybe one day you'll go back
and the edges will still be trimmed
and the sidewalk still tidied
but we know better
don't we?

let me out

i need some fresh air
i need to clear my head
my walls are moving
and growing something fuzzy
i need to get outside
i need to touch something damp
my floor creaks all night
and the grooves are spitting up hair
let me out

summer sirens

the summer siren takes on new meaning 
when tangled, lake-water hair is awoken in the night 
to speeding flashes of red and blue.
