  1. And Then Some (More)



    Praying Mantis

    I saw one once
    when I was a child
    on top of a retaining wall
    outside our country house
    one summer day

    It would have been easy to catch, I thought
    but I didn't try to catch it

    I just looked at it
    a long while

    Pharisees on Hollywood and Vine


    So the other day I run into this Old Yank Boomer I know, nice guy, always liked him,

    and he gets his panties in a twist about a movie I said I liked—

    I mean, he's having a calf over this, making a scene right there on the street in broad daylight!

    Who is the third who walks always beside you?
    When I count, there are only you and I together
    But when I look ahead up the white road
    There is always another one walking beside you
    Gliding wrapt in a brown mantle, hooded
