nothing about sunflowers
luring honeybees

~~ 1 ~~
organic cherries—
red and ripe and luscious
in a blue-green bowl
~~ 2 ~~
our midsummer’s feast—
dining on organic figs
and wedges of cheese
~~ 3 ~~
organic apples—
whining about the bruises
that soften their flesh
~~ 4 ~~
organic silence—
good news for the old poet
scribbling at midnight
~~ 5 ~~
ripe organic plums—
ants come from three miles away
for the summer feast
~~ 6 ~~
my shoes coming loose—
organic cotton laces
crumbling into dust
~~ 7 ~~
for ripe fruit she pants—
bunches of fat purple grapes
organic, luscious

Waiting for the Village Jazz Series to begin, Yuma, Arizona

on a bench three friends
discussing the evening news—
thermometer falls
