7haiku

only this river

knows our secrets   our faults

its darkest deep silt

*

just this world and my

place in it   which no account

of your wars will change

*

shoulder to shoulder

envious men   abandoned

from their daily grace

*

for all our wars our

avarice    on mountaintop

I await your mercy

*

the squirrels on Cape

Cod all wear fisherman’s caps

squirrels on Cape Cod

*

a heartened prayer

a poppy tune   a pretty

girl comes jogging by

*

my father’s old shirt

tattered   frayed   finally

fits the errant son
