the light beyond


blustery open field
crows inciting
a riot

fearless sandpiper chases away
the mighty sea
and her creatures

frost settling
on my old dog’s

warm summer day
-fixing the dripping faucet

missed opportunities-
so many stars
so little light

saying too much-
scraping the black
off of the toast

stars between dusk and morning
-molars crunching ice
in the summer heat
