in response to the predicted

molten and lifting up off horizon
as seen through the skeletons of trees
from a 2nd floor window,
today’s magnificent sun

the styrofoam i line mama cat’s box with
in the afternoon sun in response to the
predicted sixteen degrees
for the night ahead


the big rooster body (black feathers splayed) in emory’s arms
after days of sickness
his body is now carried off
to the walk-in

really enjoy emory says from the couch
while the rest of us circle around dinner
our hangouts

how the gathering flames curl and roll
over themselves like a wave cresting
as i peer into the big firebrick-lined furnace
whose fire i started log cabin style with the flair necessary
for it all to fit in the narrow long space

from the water world:
