Portrait Of God On Work Release
I walk in the park
and select a maple leaf.
With my Sharpie I write:
YOU ARE HERE.
Carefully, I place the leaf
back where I found it.
Willow, Weep For Us
The large body waltzed the small body
Across the room. A mother and child?
Princess and dwarf? The faithful son
Dancing with his maddened mother,
Pretending to be the man who forsook
Them both, years ago? Hard to say
