12/11/19: Decades

passing in, out

of streetlights—shadows shrink

and leap with each step

12/5/19: What If It’s Just Sound?

voices tittering

through passing phones—nothing

eludes notice

11/8/19: The Change

while I slept

a storm—and every leaf left

fell in one night

10/16/19: The First Really Cold Day in Chicago

shoulders hunched as

gusts steal every abandoned

conversation
