Temperature At Thirty Three

Our shaded half
hides me from heat
Year in and out
we seek a shelter

My solution
is to meet curtains
right before
sunrise and shut

out each degree
increment of hate
and stupor
in this house

whilst others fling
and swing - by hinges -
openings to
let warm winds in . . .

Looking Glass

Mistaking a neighbour's
two-stroke strimmer
for another trapped bee -
one more season's reck -

it too duped this side
of fingered glass panes -
just another easy
summertime error

I lifted a cold blackbird -
paw-rolled after impact
with that same window -
taking it from our path

to place . . .
