A backward glance...
autumn sunlight dappled just so,
never saw it ladled quite as deliciously.
The family of loons not seen all summer
now suddenly patrols the dock,
the slightest bit interested
The chipmunks will wonder, peevishly
where their nightly trove of Spanish
peanuts has gone.
Grover the groundhog will sigh wearily at
of having to charm new owners yet again.
The male and female cardinal will look for
us in vain on the front deck
after countless nightly visits,
and decree their human companions
the dirt road behind us will unspool,
and we may miss the new fawn
who pops her head out from the brush,
wondering at someone leaving such a place
when all around her is golden.
When did everyone start washing with Purell
Every time you turn around?
As if we could prevent anything.
if they have any interest in us
When did greeting cards start costing 12
The guy in front of me buys four.
Did it become a crime to dress.
like the worst possible indictment,
