sitting. out back.

sunset valley 50

sitting.
out back.
among
the meringue
gardenias.
the common
sense of a sunset.
to share this
obliging silence.
this stream of
engulf.
this valley dusk.
made canyon.
without you.

At the Farmer’s Market, a poem

farmer's market 50

at the Farmer’s Market
she has to be
in her nineties,
a knapsack laden
with fruit,
in those hands –
two cherry tartlets,
her eyes roaming,
roaming, her red
scarf aflutter
with birds
