By Wayne F. Burke


a wolf standing by
my bed
I kick out at it and
to the echo
of a shout in the
bedroom ...
Too early to get up
I do
get up,
make coffee and
sit in my chair
by the window;
the sky blue & gray
like the Civil War --
puffs of cloud smoke
from cannons
and birds
on the telephone wire
in formation.
