black lab in harness

20 Jul

there’s probably something ironic about a seeing eye dog
strolling the avenue with ease
while drivers inside toasters on wheels
go bonkers,

but irony is stuffy classrooms and closed windows.

i prefer the boxer dog
sticking its head out a car window towards
that very seeing eye dog and imagining
its tongue lick pleased by what it sees.

*broken bats baseball
most hits; position by position

          i forgot to mention the overhead light, 3-ring binder of baseball stats, and a guy wearing a ska hat beside me in the window seat…he’s a recent arrival from Odessa Ukraine interested in this baseball thing he says reminds him of Lapta. And then a donut shop appears in the middle of now here at 3 am. coffee, more conversation. blind people probably dream i think?
