keep tucked deep inside, where no one can ever bear

psyche to its state in the natural world. Like water and sky,
blue flows effortlessly between one medium to the next,
making it the connector of all colors.

Historical Society meeting I attended yesterday. Two days

With an irritated grunt, I toss back the tumbler of club
soda in front of me.
