Justice In my home officeNo one uses too much creamer  But I always have to be the one to make the coffeeIn my home office I pull a tarot card to kick off the morning It was this or finally start that yoga or meditation thing It’s a major arcana, from my Goddess deck, and itContinue reading “Justice”

Wildfire Afternoon

Wildfire AfternoonA Poem We play Animal Crossing until noon, and then Swim in the apartment complex pool  With the tiny bodies of flies, bees, and moths as Company, pray tell what ambitions should one have in a pandemic, What poems should a poet write, What odes to nature when nature is on fire? What ode to humanity When humanityContinue reading “Wildfire Afternoon”

Animal Crossing

Animal CrossingA 2020 American Haiku Series  I plant flowersCatch bugs and run Around my own island  Nothing is on fireNo one has a virus Everyone is friendly  Escape into Animal Crossing Is a 2020 mood  If only we could give giftsEat fruit and sell weeds and branchesIn real life  The night comes I talk to a ghost The goals are rewardingContinue reading “Animal Crossing”

Then IContinue reading “Float”

Moon Flower

Hope

In the checkout line the woman behind me asks if I had seen any hand sanitizer or cleaning wipes, I said no I had not, my cart full of some basics, not a haul, not a stash, not a hoard, just spinach, mushrooms, bread and butter, some eggs, some milk not enough to get anyoneContinue reading “Hope”
