the stillness
of the rope swing

from the hearse

the deeper voices
of neighborhood boys—
high summer

heat shimmers
weeds in the bolt holes
of a lost hubcap

goathead thorn—
the pond drained
to its stones

hoot of a train . . .
feet move around the stray dog
asleep on the platform

striking a match
against his boot
approaching storm

humid day—
dog drool
down the window
