trust more

while we work our way from
west wall to east wall
plaster/cement coat number two
we joke about
the frankie danger character
(who always says
i can’t hear ya
over the noise of my hog)
consuming only
slim jim’s and cigarettes
_______

mica holds out the
plastic ice cream gallon
and offers sweet bright red
bush cherries
while the rookie crew cleans
the shit out of some
plastering accoutrements
_______
red-spotted purple butterfly
(official name, though more appropriate
might be red-orange/white/light blue – spotted blackblue)
on same rock in same spot
on road

spotted it there the first time
still enough that the creature allows me
to pick him/her up
and place her/him back down again
_______
after baigz and i hug
he cheers you’re still here!
to which i cheer back
YOU’RE still here!
_______
ducking under

during post-run pond swim
to ditch the buzz-buzz-whine fly
orbitting my head
_______
i’m not writing about the kittens

not because i don’t care
but because of the overwhelm
of not knowing which
detail to pick
though the sideways hop
with sortof arched back
is a favorite
_______

scoping the site for
future (near future)
outdoor kitchen
gibbous the cat and
cricket the dog

after we joke about
me in the backseat
while they’re at the drive-through
throwing popcorn
at gina’s head
_______

then the hole-poke then
the pulling waxed thread through

onto the inside cover
