Anima Rerum


Things said briefly in a public restroom


Things I threw away before you found them


Things in the bottom drawer of the nightstand


Things that only animals eat


Things you never sent in the mail


Things they did to you when you were a child


Things you said out loud you shouldn’t


Things you got you didn’t expect


Things you always hear on the bus


Things that take more time than they should


Things that defy explanation


Things that are 50% off


Things that are safe for your family


Things you throw up at 4am


Things that got you in jail


Things your wife suspects about you


Things I never seem to get back to


Things that don’t have odors


Things that look better on film


Things you would do over and screw up anyway

crumbs at the bottom

of the honey jar


end of the year

we straighten up

the rugs


end of the year

what to do with all

these red leaves


end of the year

maybe that will



end of the year

she says let’s leave

up the mistletoe

it’s a kind of light leaf shadows


the cats the way they are with cats


casting a shadow on

the ceiling a crane fly

stuck to the bulb


across the valley

controlled burns



I didn’t miscalculate I was just incorrect


and then we can read about Mars she says
