Afternoon of August 18, 2023


summer shedding

about to sweep up

half a cat

~Eavonka Ettinger


backyard tree

rains a squirrel

~tom blessing

itchy indictment . . .

accepting a flea deal

~Roberta Beach Jacobson

chorus frogs

waiting in the wings

for their big break

~Eavonka Ettinger

nothing profound

in her words

yet she continues

~Roberta Beach Jacobson

insured elder

riddled with ailments

the perfect patient

~Christa Pandey

she told me

i need to get my butt

out of my head

years later i am still

working on that

~tom blessing

summer outhouse

most unfortunate

mosquito bite

~Eavonka Ettinger

winter quilt our patchwork of state laws

~Roberta Beach Jacobson

Who would have thought

the telephone would disappear

before the telephone pole?

~Noah Berlatsky
