Written For My Father Who Isn't Here To Know

Snow Is A Softening Of The Rain

I Feel Fine(r)

And With Words I Let Them Go

Useless (Eaters)



Used to Think I Could Fix Them.

Sometimes Love Comes With Electricity

Into The Swirling Sea Of White.

Life's A Candle

Malla Batsick

(A Prayer of Intercession--Brief Joy)

Not For The Bloom of Tears Cultivated These Last 100 Years

Love A Cat

Cuba Libre

Your Next New Dying Black Swan

Mrs. Stine, Isn't It Time?

Woman Of A Certain Age

Fragile Shell Of Morning

Disappear

A Little Bit of Harlem in Your Life

Sometimes I Hear Him

When He Returns From The Road

Not A Good-bye Day (For Our Ghuey)

July's Message

The Crow Is A Songbird

Counting The Long Days, Tilling The Greens

All Tarted Up

the brand of disappointment

Flashes, Glimpses, Moments, Time

Some Will

Coming Off Small

Please Don't Bring Me Flowers

(A Prayer of Intercession--Brief Joy)


************

brief joy
temporary as
this morning's waning red sky
or fading dew

brief joy
impatient and hungry little bird
you flit away from my reaching grasp
from my vanishing view

brief joy
stay
keep me a friend longer
love me like
I need you

brief joy
acquaint me with your kind, sort of face
reassure me
tell me we have a time
a place

though brief
you are
joy,
all through time
how
I have needed you
