dark cherries
drip through the metal colander
stain my kitchen table

Distant מרחק

עצוב לי היום
שנינו נוסעימ במכונית
ואת יושבת בשקט
אני שואל אותך
"מה ניש?"
אבל השקט נישאר בינינו
כמו כוכב אחר
ואת אומרת לי
שאני רחוק

Sad today
we're driving together in the car
and you sit in silence.
I ask you
"what's up?"
but the silence sits between us
like another planet
and you tell me,
I'm distant.

6/9/11 pt.i

the sweat of seven
million New Yorkers sticks to
the afternoon air.

6/9/11 pt.ii

It’s that time again
five p.m.
hottest day of the
so-far Summer, and I’m
barefoot again
bare armed too
The sidewalk sings me its
five o’clock
still too damned hot
hotter tomorrow blues

A yawn- no sleep since
four a.m. Blanket moving
with her steady breath.
