in through open windows like

Tryst

atop twisted sheets
a shared cigarette burning—
tears from so much smoke


Without Reflection
Noel Sloboda

nightly ritual:
all alone with the mirror
a fake sober face


What She Left Behind

after a slow thaw
a piece of old wedding cake—
freezer-burn damage

leaves whirl in the wind
hues of crimson and gold—
autumn’s cotillion
