Pool ku




pairs of lotioned limbs
grow tan on white deck chairs
sometimes a page turns


a hibiscus bud
skips across the chalky deck
prodded by a breeze


crows drop crusts of bread
into the blue pool, a few
sink to nevermore


styrofoam noodles
the color of crayons
float in bright water


the black and white cat
crouches, lapping water slyly
then feigns indifference


a ring of house keys
a pair of yellow flip flops
lie in striped shade


her gaze enjoins
the umbrella’s taut shadow
of whom does that girl dream?
