Summer's Tracks and Signs

birkenstocks are worn
to the cork
brand name burnished
off my "new" basketball
arms sore and burning
weight bench sagging
finger tips are toughened
squared off
from heavy gauge strings
binders bursting from
poems and such

summers been kind and blessed

A Couple of Days

I whip through the office
maze of desks
buzzing computers and files
smash dash
and pass before the bureaucracy
snags me and pulls me in
tasks and tasks can stack
a couple of days
I shout: "I'm not here"
and slip out the back.
