From the collection published in 2021, The Immediate and No Sooner.
the breeze got to work
gathered up trinkets and when
she wasn’t looking
a crumpled leaf tucked itself
into her jacket pocket
Sitting on the bench
two women think drab brown thoughts
before the rain comes

A playful wind bearing gifts!! That is the kind of thing I long for!
Well, today could be your day! Or if not today, tomorrow! You never know, do you?
