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

a look

that longs for sleep empty

of dreams

7/7/20: Screen Time

on the couch tracing

a fly’s meandering path

to escape

7/6/20: Dear Mr. Roethke

what if my soul isn’t

noble enough to know what

it is at odds with?

7/5/20: ‘Tis of Thee

picturing sound drawn

by Disney as waves fading

before the shore

7/2/20: Always

near here at


begging for notice

6/21/20: Blitz

pondering which

act feels more intention

than gesture

6/18/20: Carrier Wave

now receiving

signals sent—desperately—

into breezes

6/16/20: Falling Behind

wondering which

belt might be tight enough to

hold these pants up
