Across the aisle

My aisle’s a walk across the road I have

to walk. My neighbor’s stripping his bumper-

peeling decal off. We’ve had little to say

 

to each other these past twelve months.

Guessing where each other stands,

by the flags we wave. By now we’ve had

 

enough of this, our barely talking.

We have to get back to the work of

Poem: Winning in Their City

Winning in Their City

after Elizabeth Bishop’s “One Art”

 

Tonight there’s no art

to losing in extra innings.

We’re not used to winning.

Not having to console ourselves,

heart-heavy. In the park,

 

in their city, we’re all about

coming back from losing.

Celebrating the art of one-

run winning. Raising the flag

at the start of Spring’s next season.

After Traveling

It’s likely the deer and wild turkeys will be

the first churches you see when you arrive

home. And next, the leaves ringing Autumn’s

 

bells. Don’t expect to see a busload of Japanese

tourists pouring into your back yard, their selfie

sticks, batons really, directing the orchestra

 

of geese, tuning their throats, arranging their ties

Haircut

I don’t know what possesses me

to ask the order of your family

love. Children, dog, your loving

husband? Save that picture

 

in its frame that says I love my dog.

His perked-up ears. His over-biting

jaw. Displayed to look at me

to keep my eyes from wandering,

 

beyond your mirror’s frame.

Where we small talk to each other,

each time I come in. You ask me

On the Lift

There’s not a better place

on earth than sitting here

with Bill McKibben

 

in County Tire’s waiting room.

Our cars hoisted on two

lifts. Two men behind

 

the glass, swapping out

our sets of pray this winter’s-

over-tires. Balancing the others

 

with weights found

on fishing lines, the balanced

Poem: It's winter again

It’s Winter Again

Gratitude to you, young woman,

sliding your squeegee across the glass,

wiping its blade dry again.

 

Praise for the care you’re taking

applying yourself side to side.

Inside the circle, the track

 

of our field house. We both find

ourselves inside, April surprising

the fields. It’s snowing!

 

More than the redwings like,
