into the sauté pan

another tear
in the window screen

a wren wipes its bill
on a fence nail

for the silent treatment
autumn woods

before long
I too will be a house finch
face down in the grass

raking
again and again
the same conversation

where our headboard
used to bump

crosses the road

one breath away
there be dragons

the soft clink
of last night's dishes
