cold moon—
moss covers his name
on the gravestone

cattails April 2017



sparkling cider
a busker blows stars
into the sky

beaver moon
the wind makes a heap
of pine cones

our voices
join the wind

Akitso Quarterly Spring 2017

a ripe squash hangs
from the trellis


cinnamon buns—
the first time I saw
my neighbour

blackberry moon
filling jam jars
to the brim
