the squirrels are running – August 15

8.15.2017 [the squirrels are running]

the squirrels are
running
unseen.
but specific branches
are moving
thirty
forty
fifty foot up
in those trees
and there’s
no wind.

where
they prance
dance
jump
twirl
in a chase of
of passion
or anger
or play.

that’s the part
that’s hard
to distinguish,

but this we
know

that there’s
movement
up there

and it’s
them.
