Faces in the Trader Joe's

We get plain. Something decorative in us,demarcating sweet from sour fades. Our faces no longer adorn us. Only the old signals still work. The old mouth edges, eyebrow tips, laugh-frown lines forehead waves.See More

Here in this small housefar away from any thing I've ever ownedthere is a community of phantasms.I have an animal, human to mewho loves me.There are images ofhips.

Ghosts

The backyard railroad tracksand the coal piles of Ohiodie in 1943. The guilty running through the wheatfieldand the eveningtomato feasts diein 1952.

When you get to my age,
imagination is no longer
insanity. Each fruit of
pleasant life a treasure,
may be picked and savored.
It is beyond caring.
And the riches of
imagination can be deeper
than the bed and room
and even the cold winter trees,
dead flowers.
