"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2016 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw.

Back of the Wind

Oh, it's you.
You're back again.
Busting through for a
day or two, knocking
down branches
on my door, making
cicada skins rattle
on the fence, poking
under things that ain't
your business.  Sure,
I liked you last year.
So invigorating, so
fresh.  Whatever.
You can just go back
where you came from.
I know who's right
behind your back.
Get on out of here
y'old wind--
and don't y'ever
come back.
