Jack Galmitz


straggling clouds-
in the faces of sparrows,
the first raindrops
Brooklyn Bridge-
the cable's lengths cleaned
by the morning mist
Fine rain
carried by the East River
to Paris, France
Summer moon...
a man spraying graffiti
on a building wall
Summer moon...
I pass through it
to another world
