5:45 AM Dog Walk

The mountains ringing the valley crenelated in silhouette
A fire, blood orange, rising up behind
Bee and bottle brush
Bees in the bottle-brush trees
A utopian community far into the future
Their buzz the sound of a thousand motors whirring
Satellites around a planet

How do you describe the smell of dirt
In a new way?

each blade of grass

Each blade of grass a new smell

Such concentration and devotion

To leaving a mark

The paperboy (man actually) pulls randomly
Up to the next house, parking catty-wampus
To oncoming traffic of which
There is none at this hour.

Sunrise 1

The birds come to life as the sun rises
Except for the crows,
They must like to sleep in.

Our walk, a ring around the neighborhood
First south, then east as the hill
Undulates, a coiled snake (asleep)


The dogs hurry now, closer to home
And their meal and the coolness of fresh water.
