waiting for my lover
the song of the cicada
never changes

snowflakes
in shafts of windowlight —
I post a valentine

wedding picture
some of the dust
is hers

two left feet
I salsa anyway
just to see her smile

morning gossip —
the robin tugs hard
at a worm

winter beach —
your wish to be sure
before we tell others

drunken confessions
he can’t erase
my apprehension

no ketchup—
I wish things had gone
the other way

fisherman’s icebox
the look on her face
when she opens the chip dip

chat with an old friend—
only bones left
on our plates

the captive caterpillar
set free
crawls in circles
