    My Beautiful Launderetta

    I ogle you in the dryer's fisheye lens
    as your purple bra, slip, panties rotate:
    your unders cycling starkers before me.

    My palate's parched; I suck on a water.
    Not an extra pound of fat on your bones
    (although the dryer's lens could deceive).

    I think, "Beautiful Launderetta, please be
    with me tonight! How we'll fit snug together
    in all our parts!" But minutes run down,

    we have our laundry to retrieve and fold,
    and lovingly pack away. Regrettably, I know
    we've got different places to rest tonight.

    My Uncle in a Tintype

    To Douglas Matchett, 1915-2007

    In the murky gray image,
    he's like a little corporal,
    dark epaulets on button-up

    kiddie coat, white socks, sandals
    -- obviously a cold day
    on New Brighton beach

    near a hundred years ago.
    The image is bubbled, paper back
    rusted, his Mummy's penciled

    note barely legible, written
    to Daddy away in the army:
    "What do you think of this

    taken on New Brighton sands
    on Saturday?" -- Douglas who
    almost scored a century.
