Winter light is spreading thin through the
trails behind the house,
Slush on the roads
Begins to freeze in tire patterns,
Some with deep grooves from
Half-muffled, diesel trucks, and
Some shallow from the
Neighbor’s Subaru Outback.
The dog follows me around the house,
positioning herself in front of me and
sitting like a good dog is supposed to.
I acknowledge her with a
Pat on the head, which she
Dodges, because it’s
Not what she wants.
Ready? I ask her.
