  1. I walk downtown, past the old pizza shop
    along uneven slabs of cement
    the cat, with her kitten in her mouth
    striding with all four paws off the ground
    walking, looking from Kenny, getting the car

    4:52 AM, dazzled by the harsh glow of an old LED clock
    two more hours
    I go back, looking for that cat

    • Opps. “” aren’t picked up…

      (but Kenny died in 1987)

      two more hours
      I go back, looking for that cat

  2. I must remember:
    do not read or write poetry
    before bed.
    It is much too stimulating.

  3. A Lullaby

    When the wind blows
    The trees grow old
    My baby’s in a sleep
    All my worries unfold

    When the sun rises
    The new day begins
    My heart’s filled with hope
    watching my baby grow
