bargain

.59¢ brussels sprouts from berkeley bowl
discount produce section, sautéed
with carmelized onions and white wine vinegar. perfect
balance of sweet and bitter.

perspective ii

aware of my place in the world, I accept this hardship,
knowing that others know worse every day.
the cat beneath my car breathes foul exhaust,
unhindered, the world at her feet.

seeing both sides, the
seeker looks beyond, and asks
a stupid question

legacy

the sound that draws us to ask:

rain

spring: my faultless friends
have spiders in the corners
of their model home.
