On
both
sides

there
is
grass

as
much
as
the
sun
shines

and
rain
falls

along
the
road.

Studying

In the notebook, I’m studying
for a test, closing my eyes.
Some words are coming out
of the dark. Others are hiding
on the page. Some words are
borrowed from other memories.
Some are in the open, dead
as a fox.

 

The Sun

As if ever so warm
the sun is in the window
and lovely. Day after
day it rewrites the page,
breaks the limbs of the
trees into splinters of
light. How I love to shine.
