first snowfall –
her fingers move swiftly
through the bone beads

slick as a margarine tub
up in Duluth

the art of sitting
in the passenger seat
not saying a word

drinking in sunshine
we brag about the weather

Tzetzka / Rice

houses on the cul-de-sac
lost in morning fog -
New Year's Day

the electric coffeepot
percolates on low

a sigh of relief -
the robotic arm
locks on the spacecraft

jade rabbit
landed in the bay of rainbows

Tzetzka / Rice

polar vortex -
the figure skater's
final hypothesis

someone scalping tickets
for Cirque de Soleil

spam in my inbox,
another promise
of a secret affair

all the way back
to Homer's Trojan horse

Rice / Tzetzka
