fragment II

February 19, 2010

for their nest,the squirrels found
insulation, the mint-green fiberglass,
like cotton balls, snowed under
on the balcony. they aren’t shy
and don’t mind climbing our tree,
looking me squarely in the eyes
when i am out beating rugs in the afternoon.

you don’t know them. nothing drags
you outside: finding a pot for the valentine
hydrangea, in the living room. needing two jelly-jars
of water to sustain it every day.
