east wind
each petal
just enough

Tanka Sequence - London

Chalk Farm
the poetry reading
upstaged
by fluorescing
mannequins

almost free beer
in the pub
almost next door
to the last
poem

my girl and I
making out. . .
jazz pianos
in our lapels

London Bridge. . .
almost night
in the foreground
she kisses
and almost forgets

Hampstead Heath
I breathe the first star
in the steadfast
November night
London
