last day of february—
the black cat
holds up traffic

february sun—
a pink house
brighter pink

Sunday, February 26, 2006

mudflats
painted over—
scarlet ibises

dear,

the unwritten letter
collects dust

below
the naked tulip tree
a child's coat

Thursday, February 23, 2006

a jacket sleeve
waves in the doorway
almost spring

Wednesday, February 22, 2006

dead moth
at the edge of the drain
winter still

Tuesday, February 21, 2006

oil drips . . .
the rusty turbine
now silent

Monday, February 20, 2006

warm sunset . . .
holding it in
my palm

Sunday, February 19, 2006

winter wind . . .
tipping his hat
in my direction

Saturday, February 18, 2006

rainy highway
the armadillo
without his shell

Friday, February 17, 2006

holding ground
held by it—
a wet moth

Thursday, February 16, 2006

sun drenched table
lemon oil
drip
pin

Wednesday, February 15, 2006

full moon . . .
ripple after ripple
—until the debris

Tuesday, February 14, 2006

valentine's day . . .
chocolate fingerprints
on the glass

Monday, February 13, 2006

under the seesawing leaf . . .
a shadow
peeking at sunlight

Sunday, February 12, 2006

my dreams
drift—
birds in flight

Saturday, February 11, 2006

nightfall—
praying hands
sweat

Friday, February 10, 2006

fire alarm!
a crowd of finches gossip
around the curb

Thursday, February 09, 2006

old hands
bury potatoes—
winter frost

Wednesday, February 08, 2006

winter
a fly still in
the cobweb

Tuesday, February 07, 2006

early thaw—
slowly filling up
the baptistry

Monday, February 06, 2006

midday—
the last bitten
fingernail

Sunday, February 05, 2006

sunlight
slowly setting through
brunette hair

Saturday, February 04, 2006

year of the dog—
the early morning lick
bathes my toe

Friday, February 03, 2006

hitching a ride
on his thumbnail—
moonlight

Thursday, February 02, 2006

february rain—
dripping the last coat
of wax on the floor

Wednesday, February 01, 2006

morning—
last night's tobacco
upon his smile
