I’m trying to reach you…


feeling for the portal
pat, pat, pat
are you in the wire?
squeeze, squeeze, squeeze
in the phone waves?
buzzz, buzzz, buzzz
stacked in the posts?
shuffle, shuffle, shuffle
waiting, face to face?
grimace, grimace, grimace
feeling my way to your preferences:

grab, grab, grab

Riddle #29 Rake

Oliver rakes

The old saying for plain, direct speech is “tell it in words of one syllable.” Robert Pinsky
Try not using any forms of the verb: to be.

I rake
to make
the ground flat.
Reach and pull;
push and pat.
knee work:
bend and
with my rake.
