In the Dark

July 2, 2014







listen dear
do you hear that noise?
not exactly a bee’s bumbling
more a benign bear’s growl
a bassoon out of tune
followed by a hiss
a hoot owl’s croupy cough
is it the greedy grunt of a ravenous pig?
the snorts of a wild boar’s nose
pressed to fecund forest floor?
whatever it is
that eruption at the door
please turn on the light
i can’t take it anymore
oh my god!
it’s granny’s snore

Hermit Crab

hermit crab peeks out
thinking he is camouflaged
my camera clicks

i recline upon a cotton piqué cloud
adrift on the edge of this cool infinity pool
the wide arc of my view
spans the Bay of Banderas
a blend of palms, pelicans
sea and sky
brushed into nineteen hues
of green and blue
all shades intensify with the melting sun
as dusk blushes with a pale promise
of the rising moon
a dreamy day
disappears too soon
