Margaret D. McGee, US






michelle’s 50th—
streamers, salsa, and a fly
on a pink balloon



cold breath
across the fence, mist lingers
on withered fields



the sword above the mantle
reflects a flutter
of red silk



under the porch lantern
she picks out chestnuts to roast



time to throw away
stones gathered and cherished
so long ago



in moon shade
a plunging bobber

is that a keeper?



through the gate
along the circling path
she walks and waits



white foam
at the turning tide
pebbles mumble
