when I look deeper
the world disappears

a saddled horse passes
without a rider

I pass a snow angel
on a front lawn

from her stillborn calf . . .
whippoorwill

the blow-up santa
buoyant as ever

last persimmon
the real estate agent
suggests a lower price

north wind . . .
the black walnut grove
stripped to its nuts

late to work
I stop to watch
a snail cross

everyone eager to hold
his infant niece

her friends waiting
at the cemetery

from out of an old Chevy
stripped and rusting at the curb
soap bubbles
