morning dues

16 Oct

when fog decapitates building tops
and wind hisses a steady snake through tree tops,
it’s only temporary.
i play pretend holster,
clack my imaginary boots
and dream with nature.
maybe we’re hallucinating,
but church spires twist
seven seagulls fly from chimneys,
and palm trees appear on subway platforms.
