Brunch Poems Day 7 (mine).

In and out of sleep
like a polar bear content
never to paw ground
Check out the eclipse,
baby he says though the words
had to travel here
A neverending
font of dishes in the sink
Geography lies
Empty cinema
Grey fedora as a shield
I hide like a child
It rains on the house
we’ve deserted, black roof tiles
bellyup on grass
Car brimming with girls
Dancesong tuned on high
I still look sixteen
Walking up the street
grayed by products meant to melt
the ice that floors me
Bark balls, lemon squares,
crescent cookies, sugar ones
All of us like dough
Cell phone on the sill
clock set to San Diego
My heart, a commuter
