That Small Death

I got a new computer! Resume posting with vigor!

The end date of my poem-a-day project will be pushed back a bit to make up for this. I will let you all know what is up as soon as I do.

The start of my new feature Re-Read will begin next Monday. I will be talking about A Wrinkle In Time.

Thank you to everyone who wished me well as I navigated the perils of being a NYPD procedural.


That Small Death 4/17

Outside the police station
the dead bee...

Every spring I am finding
these sudden fallen insects

Ass up on the sidewalk

This one is pitch black
and the size of a plum

It is April the flowers are done
boughs dry from lack of rain

I stare into that small death
and I cannot see anything useful
