if you drove by

you'd think she
was enjoying 
q
u
i
e
t
writing
observing
from the front porch

but in reality
flies are biting
landing
footblister screaming 
snipping peaceful moments

but

she's trying 

so
o

hard
to 
ignore the flies
who are
most likely searching
for the 
unfound, 
dead-under-porch-animal

for her own
5 minutes

summer porch

on my front porch
bowl-full-of
hollyhocks
black-eyed-susans
queen anne's lace
echinacia

odor of dead animal
lingers

surely the work of Tiger,
cat #2

Inside Outside

outside

out-loud/
"I'll walk
the girls home"
after merry-go-rounds
and trying to put my
feet into tumbler glasses
like they do for 
.50 cents in Iraq
straws by my heels
walking phonecalls to
bffe's...

trainbeds
where overboard
2 men shoveled rakes
asking if I knew
'such-n-such' because he
got his act together
and is buying groceries at 
Bills T & C...

inside

i was/
arriving voices told me
Bill brought Mrs. Havens to the wedding
sitting cross-legged
watching a young persons wedding
frontly a game-boy
ready for cake
his hair was almost gray while
she said thank you for bringing me
i always wanted to come inside
watching a wedding here
cross-legged on the floor
