glittering
in the puddle
a brand new dime

    lost
    in a snowbank
    diamond solitare

    betty, strange (those puddles), and what inevitably finds their way to them


    rinsing today's meal --
    brown grackle
    bath in the same murky puddle

    in a tide pool
    moving among sea urchins
    the careful moon

    a mermaid
    caught in the tide pool--
    cunning moon

    a puddle
    two frogs'
    love pool

    independence day
    i don't believe a word
    the president mangles


    veteran's day
    the president comforts
    the dead boy's mother

    over coffee--
    glistening through the mist
    yesterdays sunrise
