Cool Breeze Continuum


you are the only one 

not flowers, not a ford mustang


diamond paper cowboy

you are the only one 


who calls me to talk about the passage

how it moves fast


space travel—rockets

or to tell me everything 


almost wasn’t all right

but now it is


you discover new 

island boundaries 


looking at 19th  century  

New York Harbor maps 


street poppies oh 

I love them...thank you!


funny today I was 

taking photos— huge blossoms 

against silver scaffolds 

blooms and concrete...

sometimes words can’t carry 

alphabets don’t mean anything 


so I just grunt/ laugh/ smile

hiccup/ cackle/ caw


& hope
