special song

days into camping
the morning slam
of porta-john doors
becomes another song
with the birds & insects

(101 characters incl. spaces)



like a dreary city street
that explodes
at coming of night
with lights & noise
and colliding lives

my dreary
rut-filled life
at merest thoughts
of you

(159 characters incl. spaces)



year after year
I lament
not owning a snowblower

yet here I am again
with shovel in hand
whining into the wind
