the darkness
of long-empty stables —
Quaker Meetinghouse

three-quarter moon
the windmill rusted
into silence

if only I could learn
to be faithful

October frost
the tread of the landlord
on crisp brown leaves

Grandmother
the stoop
in her shadow

the nest used to hang

embroidered with elk teeth
behind smudged glass

my father attempts
an embrace
