streetlight

(10/31/99)

_________First Place__________


morning stillness
a streetlight illuminates
only the fog

 ________Second Place________


streetlights come on
the elm shadow suddenly
on the bedroom wall

 _________Third Place_________
    

streetlight-
fifty dollar reward
for her black cat

_________Below Third Place________

          
crisp October night
in the streetlight glow
one ragged moth

early spring -
a few green leaves
halo the streetlight

Evening chill;
adjusting her skirt
under streetlight.

in the streetlight
a town fox

reading lamps
for the homeless

autumn sunset ~
streetlight flickers on
before supper

teenage boys -
paused at a streetlight
pooling their change

keeping my eyes
off the universe -
these streetlights

busted
under the streetlight
a hooker

held by the
streetlight -
a pair of flies

streetlight 
above a concrete post
the moon

we part -
her face white in streetlight
far down the block

between
the moon and the streetlight
two shadows

soft southern evening--
bats dive and swoop
in the streetlight glow

lighthouses
rythmically flash
streetlights of the sea

on the way from work
one by one, the streetlights
go off

damp highway
crushed leaves glint
in the streetlight

all streetlights out
after the big thunder storm;
looking for Orion

after curfew--
the adults throw snowballs
at a streetlight

streetlight
as a turtle-dove perches
it trembles

Broken streetlight -
another wasted day ends
flickering

leaning against steel friend
the long talks, the quiet nights
streetlights never move

corner streetlight
moving shadows
moths and millers

swinging streetlights
autumn leaves flutter around
yellow illuminated
