an agenda
old business, new business, negotiations, nominations
and new business

to lay out our varied projects,
without all these miles between us half of the time

the grace of the functional line
a keel, a shaft
the arrow or passage itself

Joy & Anger

parked on a downtown street

strewn with flowers or
the time when everything of ours can be in one place

a lobster in a wineglass

a speedometer

an early SAAB fitted for racing

an antique light bulb, a glowing vacuum tube

the interior design
to accommodate mechanisms and man

a hand reaching upward

a bowl of imperfect apples

An avid Sox fan.

a slew of calls
a slew of dolls
a slew of idols

a double-blade broad ax

after that day on Plum Island

I’ve never again looked
at a kite or a diaper
quite the same
