caught fish flash in sun


deep-wrinkled willow

shallow sun-sparkling water

fickle wind loves both


bored naive soldiers

at every duty station

gossip about home


tomorrow my breath

will be wind through scattered bone

i will be distance


yearning for cherries

sweet flesh collapsing into

purple-staining juice


random scrawls record

ebb tide's negotiation

with the weight of sand


willow leaves carried

on wind-spoken sentences

flying green serifs


weary survivors pick

bloody glass and steel shards

from still pulsing wounds


brass gleaming like sweat

Dizzy plays bebop changes

in key of B-flat


quarter past midnight

clock hands at ninety degrees

thermometer too
