Summer

Four Lines

of what does this group of artists
speak under these fluorescent lights
gathered round those six white plastic

Four Lines

weather neither fall nor winter
endlessly it wanders bitter

grey impenetrable soft-edged
reluctant I switch on my lamps

Four Lines

I strain my ears for the quiet
sounds that travel light on the fall
wind like the cheep of a roosting
bird half-muffled by falling leaves
