    easily find
    already celebrated
    fingers in a fist of acclaim,
    sleeping.

    sleeping
    beatifies
    even the vile scoundrel,
    yet that daylight blanches his soul
    once more

    once more
    redo, reuse,
    startling amazing
    reinventing nature's known course
    again

    Again
    fall has her way—
    tearing down summer’s work.
    From my window I watch the geese
    escape.

    escape
    run, jump, hop, skip
    hastily, quickly
    feel the summer breeze light scent
    away

    “Getaway” is actually three syllables, so I used ‘away.’

    Away
    from my window
    birds dig for roots and worms.
    In the deep grass, the cat readies
    to pounce.

    To pounce
    hop, bounce, jump, leap
    springy effervescent
    immeasurable character
    hurdle

    hurdle
    pounce, kick-off, launch
    twittery, figdety
    across enormous labyrinth
    over

    Over,
    under, around,
    between, betwixed, besmudged,
    boring all things to a timely
    demise.

    Demise
    of summer brings
    brings memories of youth,
    watching from classroom windows as
    geese fly.

    geese fly
    in formation
    free as I wish to be
    soaring over anxiety
    carefree

    Carefree
    behind the plow
    following that old mule,
    Black Jack knows this field better than
    I do.

    I do
    run, jump, leap
    silently, hastily
    work until the loud whistle blows
    I done

    I took the liberty of changing “I done” to the less colloquial ‘I’m done.’


    I’m done.
    The woodshed’s full,
    the garden’s been put to bed.
    In the distance the mountain snow
    grows close.

    Grows close--
    the static charge
    creeping like a lit fuse
    through a room full of TNT--
    in lust.

    in lust
    stared, glared, oogled
    lightly, sharply, quickly
    from each seam to glittering seam
    jaded

    Jaded
    from all these years.
    Hardened by life’s lessons.
    Wisened enough to know I’ve learned
    nothing.

    Nothing
    idle, emptied
    undistinguished spacious
    remarkable nonexistence
    zero

    Zero.
    Not negative.
    Center of integers.
    Fresh-hatched egg of the bottom floor.
    A start.

    A start
    hum, thrum, strum, drum
    silently, swiftly, blue
    encouraging words displaced old
    renew

    renew
    hope eternal
    the green leaves of spring wilt
    in the cruel Georgia sun, scorched dreams
    of youth

    Of youth
    and likewise dreams,
    I have none left in me.
    My pockets are full, but my soul
    empty.

    Empty
    until next spring,
    the garden sits and waits.
    The seed catalogs can’t come soon
    enough.

    needed, wanted
    sufficient adequate
    satisfactorily tolerable
    so-so

    “So-so,
    how about you?”
    Friends passing on the street;
    neither question, nor answer has
    meaning.
