HEAVEN LAKE (20) ~








Hair Song







My son’s hair is

More than mine

Longer than mine

Prettier than mine

Not mine but his

Mother’s and mine







I Keep







I keep a small

hatch door I built

in  my work room

ajar to hear my

wife and son talk in

the kitchen where all

the best talking has

always been done







11 Years Old







I see how much

He has grown when

Bending to kiss him

As he sleeps an arm

Out of the covers

Is very very long








Out In The Woods





Young son

waits



patiently

this



summer

with



tele-

scope



for one

more



plane

to fly



over








Needs







In the bakery

dad carries out

a trim white box

of Sunday delicacies



his little daughter

follows, white cap

ignored, holding a

cookie to her nose
