Out, Back, Out


Labrador in summer, as autumnal as boots,
in shade brighter than darker voyages.
Shovels work puppets, making like it's creation of curves

with gleaming snow-plows pulling air.
The outside is inside; the inside is outside.
The air, pulling, plows snow, gleaming with curves of

creation. It's like making puppets work shovels.
Voyages darker than brighter shade,
in boots as autumnal as summer in Labrador.

Best Radical Disaster


Good for him, pulling cyber security products
to the shock and ire of his own legislative party.
There were "too many unanswered questions".

A three-month extension of the debt ceiling
burned the people amid concerns that

a spokeswoman confirmed. The president
is an untrustworthy and unpredictable ally.

On More Than One Plane


Angered by her refusal to come down harder
I feel her absence often. Welcoming
a few reflections from the past allows her to

directly engage with memory, loss, and
the notion that one’s understanding of the past,
can alter over time, loosen her grip on

an unwavering version of the past
and finally comprehend the present.
This never made much sense to me

There is danger when snakes team up in managing your money,

The reptiles coordinate their investments outside the chase,

but it failed to capture the golden exclamation points.
