june asks me if the training
has helped my stamina in frisbee
and i say on some days i can feel it, yes
but on days like today – not so much
and afterwords, beyond the high-fives

she says something about my humor
keeping all of us laughing


honna and i name several key things
on the phone in the afternoon:



under a star-punched sky
crescent moon dangling near
two planets
a light up on the neighbor’s hill
tossing tree shadows into grass
after we pull up into the drive
heard just above the cricket chorus
the sound of singing
a group of women’s voices
sounds secular
pulls me up the hill
to listen
in tree-shadow
