Two Hawks Aloft


Two hawks aloft
crows anxious banding together
Carol Ott comes over to my house, likes the warm weather, November
a California Christmas and maybe species will change places to reflect that,
paints watercolor ornaments, gentle Jewish lady
how far from her past is she now? or is she quite aware just not talking about it now
I wonder what she thinks the solution to Israel-Palestine might be
ask her sitting around the pool next summer
almost always disappointed people haven't given the single state solution more
      thought
we discuss Thanksgiving, the cleaning and cooking before and the cleaning after, then
      the insane Christmas potlatch
deciduous trees have a special winter beauty, conifers among them.
