Plus

Feeling the tingle of dawn. The pull of
day and wonder, the tonal thump of gangly orange
light. Sudden substance of heat and memory.
Loud gulls glow tuberose. A cat paw once took this
computer off sleep with a tap. Feeling pure of heart,
feeling ready for joy again or something.
Sudden pang of misery and delight. Sudden truck
bump and humid boom across the courtyard and
off the buildings not more than 100 yards in the
distance. Tower, haze, heat waves delight me
at dawn, pink and cherry -- glowing pale
blue by 8 and dimmer and muskier by noon.
