119/365: Dank Dog

This heart crawled beneath the growth
— under leaves, stalks,
dust drought-dried to finer silt,
through to black shade behind the planted row —
and lay itself down in quiet remove,
no roots to plant,
no water to feed,
a dank dog panting.


I am writing one poem every day in 2016, and I am using the hashtag #365poems to document my progress.

We find our space
in separate, warm comforts,
calling back and forth.

117/365: Airport Waiting

At the airport gate, 
tucked into phones and tablets,  
we wait for the sky.
