coming back from Breakfast. 3/12/14

this little strip of woods
between the street and the highway,
the Hudson River
beyond the highway,
and the Palisades across the Hudson-
are what i see
on my way back from Vickie’s Dinner,
and breakfast
once a week. 

and what i like
is that soon
the spare black and brown
(mostly vertical) jumble of tree trunks and branches
will begin to sprout small green buds,
than little leaves..
and i am looking forward
to warm weather once again.
and what is now a little strip of winter woods
will be a lush green forest
and, (except for the sounds from the highway)
only God knows how far you can go
into those woods.

the woods along the highway
are golden-amber
in the rain.
the woosh of traffic-
and across the Hudson,
New Jersey is an afterthought;
a blue-gray brush stroke.

your looking at yourself
your flat stomach
and i am looking at you
what is this thing?
boys on tumblr
but not sheep
jump fences as i sleep
climb trees
jump off bridges
boys break the rules
and admire boys
and everybody is hiding an elephant
in his room.
