Blue Monday: Hoop

IMG_8636
A basketball hoop hangs from a garage, San Diego, California.
 


The basketball hoop stays forlorn
From evening until the next morn.
No kids come to play,
So it’s safe to say
Their absence is what we should mourn.

Curse

Crow from the mountain,
have you nothing else to do
but curse at the clouds?

taking the shadowy path
but no companion

Blue Monday: Shoe

Lost shoe, somewhere in California
 


A runner slipped out of her shoe—
A pity, because it is blue.
Her foot is now bare,
She’s nothing to wear
Until she buys footwear anew.

Freedom

Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, San Diego, California
 


“Freedom isn’t free,” they said,
“You have to pay a price.”
Then they sent us off to war,
Fighting nits and lice,
Fighting other people too,
Who bleed like you and me.
“Did I have to die,” I ask,
“Just so you’d be free?”

Bunny

Section of a floor mat in a church nursery
 


Bunny on the floor mat,
Tell me where you’ll go.
Will you hop at daybreak
Off to Mexico?
 
Or will California
Lure you with its name?
Bunny on the floor mat,
Aren’t you glad I came?
