Thee Poems from "Sonnet, a Renga"


after the storm
flowers grow
and bloom
yet again
Lisa and I, 1979
among the crepe myrtle
and spring flowers
of austin’s japanese garden
we would feast
on canned smoked oysters
cheap wine and each other
the world exists
in front of you
with luck
a peripheral sight 
expands you
enough to bend 
back upon your vision
to create a new sense 
of self that can see
how great a fool you are

(from “Sonnet, a Renga, 2011-2012)
