Acceptance (Two Haiku)

All I can see now,
light glimpsed through slats of fence. 
No, all I can say.


Still: even so. Still:
after all this time. And still:
spring snow silent, still.

Six days left till spring, 
first fire of winter burning, 
one coming, one here.

Daylight savings dusk
the open end of a flask

March 4

Mom died on the 4th,
held in her children’s embrace, 
and for nine months since.

I need help she called
my dog is throwing up blood

On the Road

There’s more than one way 
to walk through this world as two.
Married? One home? Hush.
