bit by bit
we load up the vans
our possessions
following us around
like offspring we never had

  a warped water ring
peels off the table
with the mug you set aside
hours before, so sure
I'd take care of it

    band practice
down the cul-de-sac
can’t compete
with the surround sound
of cicadas in the trees

the ratcheting
of katydids’ did or didn’t
did or didn’t….

all night your words
rasping in my mind

  the wonders of Skype
I see & talk to my mother
half the world away
the sun now leaving
my sky for hers
