Bright Stars 5

A few from Bright Stars 5 published by M. Kei in 2014:

that man
in camouflage
clothes
how young he looks…
how old

riding my new bike
down the hill…
a barbed-wire fence
teaches me a lesson
I’ve tried to unlearn

this email
rewritten, revised
twenty times…
I find another clump
in the litter box

fifty miles
Into our trip
on a toll road
I ask
did we check the stove?

my grandson
prancing around the room
naked –
too young to know
the meaning of shame
