camping alone

a deer tick on my back

just out of reach

(Highly Commended Fifth Annual H. Gene Murtha Senryu Contest)


turkey Vulture

an old woman’s shoulders

in the mirror

produce box

a banana spider

far from home



the taste of roasted



telephone call

I put on my glasses

to sound smarter
