sense data

sitting on his porch hip kid typing out his epic on a selectric

squirrel splayed on its back with two Xs over its eyes

crow in its ruffled coat on the lamppost crying to all who would listen

three mourning doves evenly spaced out on a telephone wire posed in prayer

a penny on the sidewalk a penny on the sidewalk a penny on the sidewalk abe-side up

inside the bar mumbled conversations and crossed legs

a whiff of ah clove cigarettes

smudged golden sunlight from nearby brush fires

every second house crinkled brown lawns

golden lab's leg up giving a stream of pee to the modesto ash

blur of words what language did she say that in

someone waving either hello or goodbye
