Grown Up

Child-like
yet no longer
a child, anger
grows.

Spacing for Sky

Thinned
seedlings
in a pail
of rainwater:
gifts.

Parked

I was thankful for the hot wind
stirring through the Chicago crowd
carrying the weight of my
words.

Today I sit alone
a resting place for birds
casting shade at insects —
speechless.
