"DO NOT ENTER" tape
lifting in the spring breeze --
the gate opened wide

    lightning overhead
    holding threads of brown leather
    thundering hooves fly

    rusted gate-
    morning glories
    twist in the wind

    abandoned backyard bed
    "do not pick the flowers" --
    weeds flourish

    gate man
    fallen asleep
    his mouth wide as the gate

    April rain showers
    playing with the flowers
    spring is beginning

    signs of spring
    blocking out the sun --
    his hand cross her face

    hazy moon
    the detective dusts the window
    for prints

    spring breeze...
    at the end of the day
    cocktails at the ritz
