the first watch – when a

every other moon,

waiting for a glass

waiting for a glass
of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
topped with a pinch of

salt is an unexpected
reflex, a pleasant surprise

catching us off guard,

once in a blue moon,

once in a blue moon,
the bluebird finds a perch in
our backyard, and mom

whisper-shouts hurry, come see,
and he turns around to look

the things you didn’t

the things you didn’t
grow up with will always surprise
you even years from

now – with wonder, still, the snow
falling and sticking, on repeat

the moon is often

the moon is often
some kind of surprise – hung slightly
askew by the night

attendant, left to slowly
fade, then reappear elsewhere

everyone’s running

everyone’s running
out of time
the first of a brand
new year comes
a knocking,
surprising us all

the first of may slides

there are surprises

there are surprises
that tuck themselves neatly into
sunday afternoons

as if they were always meant
to be, easy, reassuring
