Free parts

A girl in three parts,
Dancing freely, glimpsed
In three windows' reflections.

Brushfire, Brushstrokes

B r u s h s t r o k e s
Shrub
          spokes
Field            smokes
Fires            stoked
         Evoked
Eyes              looked
       Misspoke

      Mind woke

Rearview camera vision

Reflection below
Streetlight above
Bounced back up
Splashing raindrops,
Interrupting image,
Electric-looking
Firework spitting,
Sparking impossibly
On pavement's
Wet-glossy black
Asphalt slick face.

Holiday lights

an unbroken chain of holiday lights
stretches across the city.
not decorations:
the headlights of flocking shoppers.

Waves

The misty city's distant hill became a rolling sea,
each house a white-capped wave disturbance
on a dark background of trees.

Planes Make Rains

loudly passing
planes are crashing
into clouds,
silent-loud:
rain spills out,
eyes in doubt.
