Sobriety Date III

One day at a time
Turns to one week, then one month
And, today, six years.


Up in the Air

First warm day of spring
Charcoal smoke and soccer balls
Float over the park.


Old men playing chess
An enameled samovar
Steams in the shadows.


The Tarot reader
Draws a card, and sips her tea –
Who will come today?

Labor Day

Summer’s last picnic
Children spitting melon seeds
At the school year’s face.


A dropped ice cream cone
One red ant, then two, then four
Suddenly – hundreds!


A lemonade stand
I trade my last dollar bill
For a cool pink cup.
