In a downtown shop,

middle school girls soak their nails—

the poor beg outside.

the Daylilies are blooming,

how many days left?

sleepy children on my lap:

the artist-dad life.

U.S. holiday:

people barbecue and toast

to fallen soldiers.

In Assad’s vile head

darkness festers and dictates:

blades to children’s throats.

my daughter reads while I write;

the walls have come down.

Gritty 18th Street—

smelling sweet pan y café—

Cool spring breeze blowing,

crouched children poke sticks in dirt;

letter from a friend.

heads aim toward arc of the sun;

pools will open soon.

Flashing golden light

shoots into my morning eyes—

under the ‘L’ tracks.
