AWASH IN PURPLE
Everywhere earth

is awash in

purple twilight

bathing all

in its holy light

STARRING THE PINE

The morning glory vine
branch by branch
did climb
until her white stars graced
each needle cluster
of the pine

CHINESE CHARITY

It was a record night.
In the several 6 foot high
apartment building dumpsters
there were 7 trapped raccoons.
At midnight, cheerfully and
immediately, a Chinese man

at someones request

immediately lifted
off a mattress someone had
dumped onto a baby one.

HUMAN CHAUVINISM THREE
The prolife activist
had aborted baby birds
for breakfast.
Some called them eggs.

neath the axers
laid supine

ELDER ABUSE

The woman was bragging that

she had assumed control

of her octogenarian father’s

life. He was no longer

going to bed when he pleased,

she said. She had put him

on a routine.

SYMPHONY OF THE SEA

Seawaters have a fizzing
sound in surf ..
Further along they
slap against the piers,
crash against the rocks..
silently slide
in the tide
Above them
sails flap in the wind
lightning cracks
gulls shriek
In the poststorm sky
the wind sings lullabies

BARBIE’S CUE

Ken remembered

Barbie’s cue

to

avoid the benzopyrene

of barbaric barbecue
