the razor wire glints

maddening heat
      the cicada still singing
      in the crow’s beak

 

 

 

 

 

 






Prison fence:
the razor wire glints
with first light

 

 

 

 

 

A fresh bouquet
at the gravestone with the name
worn away

bathtub cricket,

where do you go

while I shower?

trashman small Ann Althouse asks “Do the departing college kids just

throw all their crap at the curb in your town?”  They apparently do it 

everywhere.  If you have to be a curmudgeon to complain about 

it, then call me curmudgeonEsq!  As usual, I wonder why so many

teachers, parents and advocates want to make excuses for so-called

adult students — and ask so little of them.
