keep going

if you need to see
the world in a certain way,
at least choose the way
that includes all other ways.
winter rain fills the rivers.

happy new year

thank you, dirty sink.
faithful friend, you look the same
as you did last year


my holiday wish:
make the world safe for plankton.
it’s the little things.


.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.
