Nothing improves a party like a baby goat! This one came to the celebration 
for my grandson Tanner's high school graduation. And was greeted with joy
by the red-haired girl from next door. Everybody petted the goat, and 
it was a fine feature of the party!

At a Kitchen Table

Not a flock of stories
not usually,
but a few that arrive at dusk,
in pairs, quietly
creating themselves
in the feathery light.
And rarely with fancy plumage
of blue or green and red
but plain, as of clay or wood,
with a plain little song.
Theirs are the open wings
we light our table by.
