Urban Pastoral 2

Pink neon pontoons,
underwater streetlight moons
and schools of taillight
make a resplendent planet
of a rain-wet avenue.

Last Prayer

When I’m carried off
this battlefield, may Nana’s
plump little teapot
not fall into the rough hands
of the Salvation Army.

Second Run

If your life were a
Hollywood movie you could
get a refund or
take to Rotten Tomatoes
and give it a crap review.

Perspective

From the nineteenth floor
of Lima’s Hotel Crillón
I convinced myself
a May Day workers’ riot
is just like an Earth Day march.

Illuminations

Three tents are on fire
under the freeway over
a smartphone dispute
and here comes BART, a blue flash,
the light of a thousand screens
