A seven-mile run gives one time to think.

birds, black and white, eye-
ball each other, expressing
no thanks to the line

Observation

Cirrus Bender

Clouds froth over a canyon
or tilted stein.  Their full effect

should be felt in the morning
a rousing rumbling overhead.

use the word and those who do
. . . do not.  I hear ya.

Rio Olympics — near the poo . . . l.

I kept being alarmed by the language of a “reporter,” interviewing athletes who have trained and have proven themselves to be the very elite in their discipline. I was able to sleep after jotting this interpretation of “skill.”

Etiquette

Two orange t-shirts,
in their fifties,
occupy a corner booth

designed for six,
share belch after belch
for our noon meal.

the storm passed, firmament
