carlsbad new mexico
“with practiced ease”
trees beside the highway

chattanooga tennessee
half-eaten breakfast sandwich

abandoned amphitheater
space heater
explicate, always explicate
a mordant smile

carefully diversified
the previous administration
politesse… you don’t even know what it means

kansas city blues


kendrys morales
designated hitter
of the kansas city royals
struck terror into the hearts of the opposition

with his blue hat
and his big bat
he left nothing to chance
but sent his mighty blasts soaring majestically into the night

carp in the pond
trout in the stream
they will never cross those ghostly plains
and that’s no chicago lie
