Sirius Dog Star
terror of night skies
you bite a bone moon

Sirius Dog Star
chasing a comet’s tail
swift as cosmic dust

you bite a bone moon
but where in the heavens
can you bury it?

REFLECTIONS (based on the art of Andi Abdul Halil)

Sparrows bob their feathered heads in puddles
of April rain. Up and down they peck the waters,
their beaks jackhammering the stillness
into concentric circles that reflect
gray-brown passerine faces, a bird revue
of headshots before nature’s funhouse mirrors.

Sometimes I wish I could drink with them,
see how many faces I have worn,
how many shards of water glass reveal
my life’s masquerades, kneel before the puddle,
drink my fill beside that bobbing sparrow
until the rains end, the bird shakes dry its wings,
and the mirrors fade with the amen of my confessions.
