in the butcher’s

in the butcher’s
shop, we can
conveniently
forget
the animal
and hunger
for the meat –
in fact,
convenience
doesn’t even
cross our minds

the twin dogwoods in

the twin dogwoods in
our backyard play hide-and-go-
seek with each other,

like siblings, hoping to catch
a glimpse of a white-tailed deer

i am at my best

i am at my best
when you are
reading me,
sucking on
a hard syllable,
brewing individual
layers for meaning,
gathering each
string for the
rope. together,
the words form
a dying animal,
ready to be used,
no discards
