curb

(8/17, 1998)

First Place 


   first warm day --
   in the curb runoff
   a paper boat
                 -acm


Second Place 


   waiting at the curb -
   reflected on the skyscraper
   a brick chimney
                    Harold


Third Place 


   lounging on curb
   three homeless people
   discuss Dow-Jones drop
                          soji


   curbside concrete path:
   footprints
   from two dogs ago
                      Sue

   
BELOW THIRD PLACE 


   along the curb--
   my Olympic hopeful walks
   the balance beam
                     Joann


      the poodle
      wets the one wheel
      on the curb
                   Timothy Russell


           yellow leaf
           on the curb
           belly up
                     Charles Trumbull


              toddler
              scaling the curb
              with both hands
                              Don


                 just behind her ear
                 a red lips tattoo ~
                 I curb the urge
                                  ebj


                      a straw-hatted pony
                      waiting beside the curb -
                      cart full of pies
                                         Ferris


                           floating acorns -
                           a truck's wave breaks
                           over the curb
                                           Paul MacNeil


   an old man
   feeling the edge of the curb
   with his white cane
                        kim h


       first day at school -
       a big step from the kerb
       to the bus
                    Hugh waterhouse


             she curbs his desire
             ...cold cream and rollers
                                        Betty


                  at the old well
                  lizards left wet joint
                  for sitting on sunny curb
                                             emile molhuysen
