a series of Japanese poems

Sand-polished black glass
Sea gull skeleton picked clean
shares shore with driftwood
Homeless people eat and sleep
in harbor of city dump


* #
Glass thermometer
beside bottle of aspirin
Perfect attendance


Roadside giraffe splays
flesh imprisoned by food chain
African lions


Cow on bed of sage
stares dead center at bright sun
Bull's eye of buzzards


After the snowfall
trees wear white while flowers frost
May in Montana
