a Monk in August

the day heat
sits deep inside
temple rooms

the tired monk goes
window to window

lets in the cool
August night air

a monk swim

eyes down
below the surface

legs beating
just enough
to keep these old monk bones
from sinking

novice voices n'laughs
sound clear over the bay

steady elementary backstroke
back to the beach
and into monk robes

falling photo

the photo falls
slips out
from between
the pages

the last one
from the role
an over exposed edge
dipped in yellow light

the other side
a bit blurry
my wife
and my lost brothers
