AFTER DARK

in circles

in the library

for a book about worms


morning struggle

sparrow swallows roach

nature’s law


the bulge of curtains

pale winds trapped


dusty fan blades

slice the wind

pulse of night


shadow of sun

beagle ignores its owner

staring into space


cat and i

on our back

afternoon nap…
