they say
venus and the moon
will be close
come morning.

my old dog
has a mole
she s licked
into a bald
spot.

she looks
at me
like she
wants to be
walked.

regardless of drugs
the cold
has entered
my bones
like hot coals
tangling
my feet.

it s tough
not to think
it s not deserved.

one
red
cabbage
remains in the garden
woodsmoke is in the air
the flies and wasps are gone
it s finally time to
remove the
screens
thank
god.
