tanka

tanka--
small songs I sing
to join
my voice to other voices
hidden in the grass

city lights

plastered
on corrugated metal,
this enormous eye . . .
I enter the city
through its lake of light

bumping fists,
two homeless men
unfold their cardboard
messages of need . . .
the lone poem in my pocket
