1.
I Broke My Leg

I have no time to notice
what takes place around me

Where guilty extremes grow contrite...

For Her

That laugh revives a warm memory.
Shoulders rolling hair swinging
That year a familiar territory
as near as last Saturday

and I'll even throw in the garden hose
Just as long as my fate, a rose
...

10.
Transcendent

You may have goals
But settle for sleeping
anywhere
...
