Fly Fingers

My phone muted Is no computer It’s just a ruler A call-calculator Counting my dials Recording the miles My finger pecks Have or haven’t pressed yet My hand’s a jet Flying for digits Thumb and pinky: wings My wrist’s the engine There’s no propellers Or landing gear Repeat the cycle Repeat the cycle Lunch receipt … Continue reading

Elegy for Penny

Can we just pretend Good dogs go to heaven Or their heaven where heaven Is a dog park with pet cocktails Which taste like peanut butter juice?
