Graduate

Poem By William B. Deutscher

Commencement proceedings are done
This Sunday afternoon and wind blows,
Rustling the green leaves of the trees
Beyond the vacant athletic field;
Among the first to emerge now
From the college auditorium,
A young woman in cap and gown,
Her brown hair flopping slightly and
Long legs striding with purposeful grace,
Walks quickly across the parking lot
As raindrops fall from puffy clouds
That envelop the sky overhead.

Deluge

Summer's evening storm
Darkens my window
With the close pressure
Of humid air

Dream

Forgotten,
Your lost metaphors
Try to knock
Down the walls

Not The Same

Now waiting expectantly for summer
To play in the ear as a tinkling tune
The fairground whirl of the once-empty lot
Dancing music for air-conditioned nights

Death Of A Coworker

"It's a damned shame that he died all alone, "
You say with ambivalent sympathy
At one point during the course of the day,
Now funereal with the death of a man

Down The Shore

Summer sun
And fairground turn,
Afternoon edge
On the cusp of a smile.

Domestic Disturbance

As the couple next door
Resume hostilities
Bits of their detritus
Float in the August night;
