on the map
on the map
a moving line of white
coming my way-
a loud skein of geese
ignore me as they pass

off the roof
off the roof
a loose shingle flies
in cold wind-
held back anger
finds its first victim

    driving
    driving,
    with no need to walk,
    over the bridge
    that leaves no need
    for boats

    for the warmth I want-
    an electric blanket

    dead leaves move
    in the breezy afternoon
    as I sit still
    debating with myself
    the importance of life
