~~ 1 ~~
 
Abundant whimsy
fills the Delhi beggar’s face,
emptying her bowl.
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
at his steely core
nothing but admiration
for the brutal ones
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
a badass dolphin
out to impress the ladies—
they all swim away
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
a murderous whale—
the one that took down Ahab
still roaming the seas
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
the prairie’s expanse
constricted by last night’s rain
into a puddle
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
only a concept—
the sound of a tree crashing
when no one’s around
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
learning how to spell
by scrawling lines with a stick—
children of the dunes
 
~~ 8 ~~
 
singing of small things
things that can’t even be seen
without microscopes
 
~~ 9 ~~
 
offering herself
to the wind and rain and sun—
maid for all seasons

a wounded dolphin
trying to swim to safety—
the wound proves fatal
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
on a parade float
the faintest glimmer of light
from a yellow rose
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
impartial jury—
the prisoner’s only hope
for clearing his name
