Night Terror

 

Walking home alone

Autumn mist chills the darkness

Footsteps behind me

 

 

On the Block

 

New neighbor next door

invites me in to visit—

guns on the counter

 

 

Rural Weekend

 

Teenage amusement

running through country cornfields

a wolf pack nearby

Something is Not from Nothing

 

if you don’t recite the poem

if you don’t sing the solo

if you don’t write the book

if you don’t give the speech

 

you don’t allow failure its opportunity

 

but instead

 

guarantee it

at the foot of the Spanish Steps in Rome.
