practices the guitar
his two pet rats
stare down from each shoulder
at the music in his fingers

  that ditty –
things go better with Coke –
stuck in my mind
easier to handle
than thoughts of you

    reading your poems
I wander
        through minefields
                                 in sunshine

casting minute
after minute into the wind …
taking off the mask

  a foot away
from a bald eagle –
in my photo
the image segmented
by a grid of steel

    all the volcanoes
erupt everywhere at once
in my heart
the sadness of knowing
I’ll leave this world no better
