Enough Crows 


Enough crows
to choke the sky.

Not enough
to speak of God.

YES, HE SAYS 


Yes, he says,
death

is the
unanswered

gesture.

THE LONG SHADOWS 


The long shadows
of morning,

the day ahead
farther than

their reach, wind
coming in

like sorrow.
Nothing's promised.

Take what's left.

OLD MAN 


He thinks
he knows

where he
is, when

suddenly
he doesn't.

The world
has turned.

GREEN AIR 


Green air
beneath
empty sky.

August's
promise
is not kept.

Shadows
leap at
silence.

EVEN AT THE RIVER 


I see
once again

the cottonwoods
have not learned

to listen.

DO NOT SAY 


Do not say
love

when you mean
hot nights

in July.
