So delicate
my stereo's volume control
why do I worry
until long after midnight
what you think about what I said

  morning breeze
the steaminess
of the night
gone with
the slam of a door

    the time it takes
to ransack all that's precious
no place
in your dark mood
for my calm, my quiet

even a beggar
feels for the child
in a too-thin coat …
he gives her half
of his morning's cup

  spring garden
the Buddha's palms
cupped in his lap
gathering light
from stone lanterns

    the ticket’s a winner
until I scratch it
the worm
rain brings to the surface
loses to a robin
