PERFECT BIRTHDAYS ~








Irene




All

that




rain

is




now

in




all

that





river






Quite A Cat





At night

when everything in the house

grows quiet the later it becomes

even the refrigerator almost

stops humming and I am done

with writing and crumble my

last piece of paper into a ball

thinking to toss it into the fire

the cat comes to me at the sound

of the paper crumbling and

knows there is a paper ball

in my hand to crouch down

on the kitchen floor planks

with him to play catch —

yes, I toss and he fetches

like a dog, so he isn't

quite a cat






Perfect Birthdays




she gave to 

me a book I

already have

a pair of bib-

overall rain

gear I already

have and for

my lover a pair

of blue earrings

she’ll always have






What She Brings
From Town





A fat clear bag


of dried cranberries


ready to burst
