Too Slow. New Year’s Day, I was driving home & stopped by the police. I was going too slow. Asked why, I say, I was listening to a poem on the radio. Failing and Flying by Jack Gilbert, it was worth slowing down for.
The Next War
It will take place,
it will take time
it will take life,
and waste them.
Ursula K. Le Guin

learn the flowers
I have been working for years. on a four-line poem. about the life of a leaf; I think it might come out right this winter
Cutout wild geese cross,
the clear, deep, gradient sky;
commuting through dawn.
