33. Backyard Sitting

Backyard sitting.
Book reading.
Sun feeling.

Up looking.
Kitchen seeing.
Wife seeing.

Down reading.
Up looking.
Wife be-goneing

Down reading.
Up looking.
Son sitting.

Down reading.
Up looking.
Son be-goneing

What magic, these creatures.
Image burning.
Mind living.
Appearing, disappearing.

Together we disappear.
As in here.
As in there.
As in gone.

Our lives are constructed,
defined, joined
by the presence of others.
Looking out, looking in.

Here, there, gone.
And always with us.

Loving these creatures is enough.
