CAKEWALK

a trio of Asian dancers

a topless dancer in a red mask
squats with a white banner

a ring, as wholeness
allowing the hole
that opens opportunity

white laundry in autumn yellow

have enough for us, the good steward

tide marsh as a frosted tangle

the luxurious interior of a log cabin with plank floors and rag rugs

an old-fashioned downtown with springboard

harvester in corn surrounded by golden foliage

while I start

packing for the extremes
of Florida and Lake Michigan
in winter

after our first weekend
briefly, the duration of that leap

perchance a woman more serious than me
should be packing for
