taking a swig
straight from the jug

he faces up to
firing blanks

written in pencil
inside the travel book
I was here

old salvage yard
automobile bones rust away
chrome fangs

smoothing out
the damp prayer flags . . .
a train rumbles past

blue light therapy—
the bear on my back
starts to slip

New Year’s hangover
one resolution
broken

evoking father's fall leaf
burning ritual.

sunny afternoon—
she walks
her cellphone

each so sure
they know

the snowman
