Burn after Reading.

Just outside my window

I hear the late September dogs

And I understand their presence

As I underscore their song.

To run pack wise

Ferocity freed

Toward You

Away from You

Or to stand and scratch

In this red dirt ground

Symbol and sigil

Story and sign.

So burn this after reading

For a nod to the heat

A wink at the light

And another smouldering fade

To black.
