of a slow drain making rounds / susannah lodge-rigal
four blue chairs & table's low, fifth
stair skipped or creak out
old ache, I am middled
a fish in water, human in house
predicament. No stay or cut easy made
to make seen a thing
seen too long. Young
to the looking-game & Illinoisaway,
then doggone & homeagain, where quiet
stair up & creak out
old ache, stepped on & no unstep, no.
open door mama sits & sits looking long
out & longwhile, still.
Susie did you see I
fixed the sink?
raspberry sand /
Without a loyal crew
only a patch of sand
stairs to climb & only
All of a sudden I don't
feel much like sand castles
That see you soon hum that keeps
trying but breaks at every turn.
