The Singer

I strung my guitar with hair you gave me,
thinking it was yours,

but old songs came in unknown keys,
the voices of animals.

Arctic Front

A desiccated
butterfly,

animated by
wind,

skitters along your
curbside.

The Wanderer

He wore
a hatful of moonlight

and in the daytime
pretended to ignore

the inconvenient coyotes
trailing him

through the streets,
howling.
