Francis W. Alexander


frigid day
meat loaf scent wafting
from the oven
  humid day
slowly slurping and sucking
the grape Popsicle
the fan's hot air blasts
yearning for her email
still another day
  first days of winter
the assembling of geese
in the driveway
a dead fish floating
from crest to crest
