lighted by pollen
the linden tree’s shadow

coffee grinder -
the crank scrolling
life’s movie

hiding in a bag
a cricket

crying with hiccups -
the waves swinging
the girl’s doll

no longer fitting in the windows
so much sun

mowing the grass -
towards the sunset only the stars
on dad’s shirt

fiercer the burned leaf’s
smell under the acacias
