After The Pleasant Part



from the soil

in the shovel

a beetle crawls


low cloud cover

early in the morning

her tight dress


in the tall stand

of evergreens

my cookie crumbs



under the bridge

a man fishes


without her friend

on the bus

her face


no one home

on the hard ground

a light snow


carried on

the flooded river

a beach ball



removing the neighbors

from view


while they investigate

the accident outside

I order pizza


wild cherries in blossom

their land rough

with junk


all I know

she has a blue star

on her left breast


gray daybreak

her “to do” list

from yesterday


at 70mph

what I saw

wild turkeys


keeping quiet

last of the day’s light

on new grass



in the fallen scarecrow’s lap

a cat


the War

a woodchuck nibbles

beside the freeway


at the next urinal

he studies a tile

higher up


garden walk

she checks herself

in the pond


the crow

in me

gets a response


dentist chair

the sun comes and goes

from the window



tracks in the snow

lead out to the road


the habit of looking

where it used to be

the mirror


on her cell phone

going into the building

“I love you too”


on time

the daily truck load

of pigs


after the pleasant part

of our walk

we hurry


warm spring day

a bra

in the bushes


the chain link fence

runs into



writing him

the second letter

without complaints


dinner over

he addresses

some crumbs


heavy overcast

between bench slats

a sprout
