Jim Davis, US





bluejay on a limb
perches, calls, listens, lifts—
a child prays to his iPhone



wind shakes the magnolia
petals fall
an aphid swims in the tea



February 15
two cigarette butts
floating in a bottle of wine



empty beer cans
after a long winter, strung together
anything can be windchimes



on the pond, a woodduck
lands, quacks at the bobbing
duck made of wood near the briar
