Tales of This and That

Section of a well-weathered wooden wagon wheel, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona

~~ 1 ~~
on a well-worn plank
peppers waiting to be sliced
with a keen-edge knife
~~ 2 ~~
As winter deepens,
her loneliness grows longer
in the waning light.
~~ 3 ~~
From a broken plate
the homeless man is scraping
just enough to taste.
~~ 4 ~~
Everything depends
on music she composes
while making mistakes.
~~ 5 ~~
Death by cliff or snare—
she imagines her revenge
on him who harmed her.
~~ 6 ~~
Artists young and old,
create out of this darkness
new and dazzling light.
