Mars drinks
from the hollow
of a young man’s life.

mother's promise

A breeze bends over,
kissing the cheeks of young grass,
and whispers of rain.

I dream of kisses
melting on my tongue.
Sex like chocolate.

39¢ a pound

Perched on the porch rail,
anticipating peanuts.
Little brown birds.

the zen of folding diapers

mother’s hands
smoothing snowy brilliance
worries dissolve
