Feeding koi, Japanese Friendship Garden, Phoenix, Arizona

in the garden pond
a thousand golden fishes
flirting with the sun
~~ ~~ ~~
splashed across page one
of this morning’s newspaper—
goldfish invasion

Old Newspapers


an absurd story
above the fold on page one—
yellowed newspaper
~~ ~~ ~~
she stifles a groan
reading her granddad’s obit—
an old newspaper
~~ ~~ ~~
weak old newspaper
crumbling to dust in her hands—
the same old story
