Experimentations

Ocean, liquid tinfoil:
woolgray skies.

*

Among napkins,
pill bottles, silverware,
and unpaid bills
in torn-open envelopes,
observe the miscreancy
of the waking mind.

*

Coffeepsalms.
Silver selah
of summer rain.

*

Collecting randomalia
into grist for gratitude.

*

Evening walk
to the café:
sparkling water,
cashier smiling,
glad to receive
payment in quarters.

*

Build wordshrines
against the glare and shout,
against the ruckus and rush.

*

Stalled, stilled,
the mind abides
here, how, now.

Entertaining throughout, but "liquid tinfoil" is outstanding.

These remind me of Kerouac's "Pops" in nature.
