The Slate Step Brightens

:

:

mating dragonflies

the slow folding

of her wings

:

:

out on strike

the uncomfortable hang

of his hands

:

:

winter morning

the scrape of a coat hanger

across its rod

:

:

cemetery

the sharp edges

of the new names

:

:

after rain

the blueness

of fireflies

:

:

20 stories below

the gestures of people

are meaningless

:

:

wittling

till there’s nothing left

of the light

:

:

cold snap

the automatic door

opens slowly

:

:

our goodbye

all the places

where we touch

:

:

party over

the long down

of the elevator

:

:

long slow curve

passing again

beneath the geese

:

:

after snow

a faint yellowness

to the white house

:

:

light rain

the slate step

brightens

:

:

visiting home

in my childhood bedroom

the same shadows

:

:

the mathematician’s wife

pregnant

again

:

:

the river

the river makes

of the moon

:

:

slant of light

the dialect

of the region

:

:

throwing away

the envelope marked

“simplify your life”

:

:

empty mailbox

she leans awhile

on her walker

:

:

new green leaves

a child I don’t know

waves to me

:

:

New Year’s Day

a message on

the answering machine

:

:

mosquito

I hit nothing

but myself

:

:

slow dance

feeling her smile

in my neck

:

:

TV store wall

every sky

a different blue

:

:

midnight thunder

the clock

starts over

:

:

morning dew

no hiding the way

we’ve come

:

:

first autumn wind

not feeling the knife

slice my finger

:

:

excavation site

the holes

living things leave behind

:

:

practicing

to make my signature

look natural

:

:

equinox party

returning home

the way I came
