Coyote Mercury

words, birds and whatever else by James Brush

Tag: gogyohka (page 1 of 2)

my yard work helper
throws mud, laughing

high forties
running through sprinklers
in filthy pj’s

the moon
cradled in elm

plastic ghosts
sway on the wind

long autumn

full trees still
to summer

a sulphur butterfly
rides prairie wind

late sunflowers
lean heavy
against a barbwire fence

a gray stone
shaped just like the moon
in his pocket

afternoon’s treasures
bang in the washer

stinky kiss
phoebe licks my face

behind a cirrus scrim
the dog star
drifts up the night

five swans
their rapid wake
touches shore

ripples in the reeds
a lone egret

the sages bow
south wind
through dry leaves
greyhounds sniff
the siren night


butterflies weave
Indian blanket

wildflower fields
surround the jail


I step
toward a cluster
of white flowers

ripple outwards
