Strawberry cactus, (Mammillaria dioica), Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California, February 2017

~~ 1 ~~
naked figurines
their alabaster bellies
shining in the light
~~ 2 ~~
somewhere in the ’hood—
poems kicked to the gutter
begging for mercy
~~ 3 ~~
at the hoarder’s house—
lockets stuffed with old photos
too many to count
~~ 4 ~~
a bloated old man
bathed by his daughter at noon
then tucked into bed
~~ 5 ~~
ambling down the street
with a basket on her arm—
market day again
~~ 6 ~~
The way the moon leans
into the battered dumpster,
you’d think it was drunk.
