Three Vignettes

by Peter Clarke

These vignettes originally appeared at Fortunates.


Don’t honk at Jonny while he’s driving too slowly around the lake looking for Laurel. Sometimes girl hunting is like bird watching, a study in patience with no honking allowed.

Light gold when the sun shines felicity.

Epitaph summer beside me

looking after your flash,

dear cream puff.
