Canada goose
Circles sea of concrete
A wave of cars
Honk pathetically

my sticky sole sneaker
squeaks in place.
olive worm drops
from the mouth of a starling
alone on a pine-littered stair.

Those undisturbed cells
upon stilts above gray matter
skitch for a new view

Lake Ontario water
cupped in my hand --
Formosa’s moon

A rabbit ran
in front of our car.

I covered my ears

hoping not to hear
what I heard.

Dog

Deranged with moonlight,
the neighbour's dog
eases out of its fur,
slips on a record, pours
a glass of red wine. Seduces
passing cars.

Consider the iguana under the palm tree.
It’s probably pining for the fiords.
Never mind the peaches momma, never mind the tree!

Snow

Cloudy bits of god march down the sky's ladder.
God is in my socks. God is wet. God is all on the pavement
my faith is unsteady.
