A Hundred Rainbow Eyes

albine plumage
fans a watching tale
two peacocks blink


Magnetic Pulse

in the waiting line ~ i unlatch and
relatch the leather tail of my watch
in the tiny metallic arc of time


The Cactus Top

body, prickly pear —
flowery head unsoft to
reach in our desert


Word Hunting

vitiliginous summer —
hand rests in the savannah
a writer licks his paw
