how I loved
teaching geometry
and algebra
so much about life and living
I never learned

  after the long siege
they promise peace
a cessation of arms …
in the blink of a sigh
rockets are falling again

    the autumn sky
holds much of me …
how quietly
the clouds change
one by one

in a white shirt
they make pages
for bibles
this thin

  a homeless man
who was playing a flute
on the street corner
fell suddenly in the rain …
a donor card in his pocket

    at the refreshment van
the blind man buys
an ice cream
for his dog, a newspaper
… just in case
