No white noise, just fans.
Summer rain past the window.
A night for mushrooms
My dog is stretched out
Turning the nightlight on as he dreams
Crickets are singing to the moon.
The storm washed away
the smallest ghosts and superheroes.
My dogs bark at teens in the street.
lures me out
gloveless in the garden.
In Athena’s park,
a fox carries a peahen.
Chicks scatter, dandelions.
