Minneapolis Protests Continued

Late on a Sunday
Glued to screens, ear to window
It’s our sixth night

Protests 5th Night

Fifth precinct hushes
We watch TV and listen
As copters circle

Riot Night #4

Our post office breached
The protest marches closer
No cops anywhere

Narcissist President

The President whines
About Twitter checking facts
My city in flames

Minneapolis Riots

Pandemic persists
As Minneapolis burns
Murderers walk free

Bird Performance Art

Birds tell their story
To hushed houses and still streets
Our cats claim front row

Three Delays

Rescheduled again
Laundry but a memory
Saved by staying home

Wisconsin Visit

We visit parents
And sit across their garage
Count masks on the drive

Memorial Day Decisions

Let’s not snub science
When the weather draws us in
How strong will we be?

School Ends At Home

The last day of school
Quietly the year exits
Kids stare down summer
