7/9/20: A Definition Seeking a German Word

a look

that longs for sleep empty

of dreams

7/6/20: Dear Mr. Roethke

what if my soul isn’t

noble enough to know what

6/29/20: Going Unnoticed

a restless eye—its regard

diffident

5/26/20: Absent Thoughts

here and

gone—leaving only the scent

of an orange peeled

4/27/20: Physical Distance

the sort of

intimacy possible

when only eyes show

4/19/20: Time to Talk

humanity’s grand

history and the tiny

faces of pansies

4/18/20: Virtual Learning

cup to wall

listening to a neighbor’s

sonata
