            foreground: a three-wicked
            candle shimmering
            through its walls before

            the creosoted fence
            past the wing of the
            willow tree hanging
            across the street
            a break in the clouds
            somewhere lights the windows
            of the upstairs bedrooms
            while a car reverse-parks
            in front and

            a squirrel stops
            on the creosote fence
            one paw up at his chest waiting
            for the sun to shine
