father absent –
though I have looked for him
year after year
not even downwind
can I detect his presence

  autumn ears
pricked to listen
old ewes
the fall of acorns

trickling into eternity
bloom like white lotus –
dew drops in its folds
stay gathered

From somewhere an Ave Maria
The wind catches its breath
For a wink of eternity
Falling yellow leaves

  IQ testing
of an inmate
on death row –
a pencil hovers
over the final question

    summer’s end
he fries the fine-boned
             close by
             a siren wails
