Hurri-ku sequence

Sandy tells candy-
dates, duct tape your windows &
your mouths, and listen!
winds so strong
that's what
Great Spirit is like
all through the storm
the small stones
stayed with the Earth
sunlight rippling
on computer screen and keyboard
sun's energy
opening the desk drawer
the scissors
works perfectly
note to self:
stop checking
the answering-machine light
note to self:
don't flick
the light switches
 the candle-flame
does not just light
cosmic love
something you can have
plenty of
outside the cell-phone store
my first call from . . .
the Crow Nation!
supermarket cafe
free electric juice
charging cell-phone
not just a winter coat,
a winter coat for her
eight-year-old daughter

at the bagel place:
    wacky lady: "you gonna make the toast crunchy?"
    worker lady: "i'm just making toast."
                     who needs tv
Marines - Semper Fi
Mankh - simpli fy
after storm quiet --
then the roars
of the generators
no streetlights
the stars
that much closer
without internet
savoring each page-a-day
calendar art
moon to the west
sun shining through clouds
ripple of breezed leaves
sun's evening rays
on oak leaves, a fiery copper
that can't be mined
why spend money
to go to a Zen retreat,
power outage
sun's light-beings
rippling on the wooden desk —
the real power never goes out
power on
the mellow music station
still mellow
power on
the birds simply
continuing to eat
a neighbor's generator . . .
reminder that some
are still struggling

- Mankh
