Bill DiMichele


in her belly
drama of the universe
to me, my tomb

sarcophagus lid
sinks low above the treetops
wash it down with beer

late summer drowses
a country cemetery
gravestones forgotten

moss rock wall
lizards do a mating dance
under the birdhouse

her eyes will twinkle
be still or be disfigured
an unfinished doll

route 701
rusty bullet holes
yellow traffic sign

to weigh a boulder
to find a single atom
sifting through the sand

ticking clocks unheard
a dark house facing the sea
splinter of a moon

ocean and mountains
cali morning, star jasmine
mexican breakfast

avocado pit
sits on the kitchen counter
blood orange cut in half

sitting at pier 9
white city, misty morning
seagulls dive for crabs
