always looking

always looking
for an angle--painted himself
into a corner

setting up the creche—
the three-legged donkey leans
against the stable
Happy holidays to all!

sun on the snow

sun on the snow
a seagull's cry
pierces the morning

after midnight

after midnight
headlights drift
through snow

in the branches
of the artificial tree
last year's tinsel

a shiver
in the fallen leaves
passing cloud

again last night (tanka)

again last night
naked in the classroom
the wrong classroom
six months into retirement
my dreams don't want to quit

spinning drier
her turtle-neck embraces
my t-shirt

cleaning the attic
so this is where I've been
keeping my life
