three subtracted by trees




our neighboring community to the north is commonly referred to as “dogpatch”, notably for its central park and abundance of trees with homes arrayed in a horseshoe around it capped by their community pool. when i first heard it called dogpatch, i flashed on ‘lil abner and daisy mae, which i believe was my interlocutor’s intent (snobs that they are), but over the years, i’ve found it to be a wonderful spot to walk around with joey (and billy when he was younger), loaded as it is with the smells of the dogs of the neighborhood and these beautiful trees (eucalyptus, magnolia, and fig-ficus.)
