My Thoughts Are

scattered as wishing was
when windows in schoolrooms were
open

outside the windows now
wondering what the children see

once storm drains were lunchtime escape
down to danger park
where the creek rippled
and birds sang

will wishes still fly through the halls
and scatter across the soccer fields
seeking solace in the park
when books are traded for keyboards
and windows for flatscreens?

Perch

red iron staircase
furry flora shower stalls
in the sandstone canyon
won't bring back hiking
no matter how clean the air

wheels big and casters small
armrests and contoured seating
a throne fit for
the hanged man
