These Are People You Know



Three figures in the picture,

one very familiar, the two

others less so.


Standing with legs crooked

by a fence that probably

isn’t standing anymore.


I know these people, but

barely and — one more

figure I almost missed.


A grandfather who was then

just a father, tucked in

the corner of the frame.





Word Splash



Words spilling,

splashing, spiking,

a flush of words


Spend them

carefully, line them

up, there are only


so many and then

you must find other



Is that me, is that

you, being bound

by two or three
