fire escape

(12/22, 1996)


FIRST PLACE


   after the rainstorm
   a few wet leaves cling to
   the fire escape

                               --Susan
 

SECOND PLACE

      scarlet baloon stuck
      halfway
      on the fire escape      

                                       Charles Trumbull

 
             tenement kids
lolling on the fire escape
          summer heat

                                  Francine Porad


   on the fire escape
   kids calling back and forth
   across the alley                

                                acm 
  

THIRD PLACE

      on the fire escape
      sneaking a smoke -
      siren's call

                           doris kasson 

      
BELOW Third PLACE

   daybreak
   a swathe of morning glories
   on the fire escape

                                    Yu Chang  
                      

highrise geraniums -
ants commuting
up the fire escape

                                 Paul W MacNeil 
                

      an ant
      on the fire escape 
      searching for earth

                                        Ed Shaheen 
                    

   trumpet creepers
   climbing fire escape--
   building condemned

                                       Ferris Gilli
