Adjunct

Radiation box
ramen boiling
fear my warped
conscience as
a brain shrivels
speed dancing
to a Slow Ride
Christmas lights
still flash in June,
timed lightning
strikes on this
angry of nights
raindrops fall
like full sacks
of wet mice
sleep tight.

Broken Flowers

The daffodils had been open
for only a day when the winds came
and knocked
most of them over.
I brought the ones with bent
or broken stems in the house
and put them in a tall blue vase
and put the vase on the table.
This is what life is like after 60.
While your friends are having babies,
mine are having heart attacks.
