another point we never met.
Last night a circle,
the finishing –
Like you and the black lab
Stretched out and calling
for another body to make it tri
symmetrical on the couch,
the faded moon behind
New Year’s Day
Melancholy orbits dash away a sun.
Children skate on the cleared and silky pond.
The man stokes a fire on the field.
My favorite cat clears my lap,
like I was a thought
he was tired of having.
For better or for worse
we both agreed.
for the better.
