this late in the year
summer heat . . .
distant traffic thrums

  1. busy street
    the pigeons also hurry
    picking up the food

    break time
    half an hour is gone
    queuing for the food

    a big backpack
    on his tiny body
    a sleepy student

  2. Thai takeaway
    pork belly on special
    in the year-of-the-pig

    rumble of thunder
    a biker pops his umbrella
    at the crossing

    misty street rain
    a lone smoker glows
    under broken neon

  3. backyard campout . . .
    we fall asleep counting
    the ghosts of stars
    .
    the flash
    of a stranger’s smile . . .
    sun shower
    .
    office tower . . .
    a peregrine nests outside
    my window
    .

    Happy Equinox to all!
