                    A Rengay

Just before dawn
a glimmer of blue
a crow caws

             eggs over easy with bacon
             sunshine with a smile

cat-head biscuits rise
with the sleepy heads
embracing the colors

             Sunday morning
             both of us too tired
             too sleep

we wonder who
is cooking breakfast

             chef's hat over golden curls
             egg with shells soufflé
             for our anniversary

—Scott Goebel & Erin Osmus

the squirrel
will forget
these mushrooms



after twenty years,
stairway to heaven          intact
