a tall thin man and his dog run beeline across the park
thoughts enter like this
some kinda maniac
cute dog, funny hair cut- i like him
later that same morning after the man with purpose disappears
he and his hound reappear along a path, by the train tracks
the man says to me " i just said hello to my wife on the train"
i say " oh that is so nice"
he says " it was at 70mph, i will phone her now and see if she saw me"
down the path i one way he the other
i hear him tell another
"i just said hellow to my wife on the train"
concrete stairs draw both owen and i down
and in a little grassy nook with home style benches and flowering shrubs, i am drawn further by a little plaque that says
"to wally and enid" something or rather
for spearheading the ashdale parkette
we walk home
a lady with heavy grocery
a house with an add on house behind it
a lady with a dog another without her dog
that wishes to tell me all about her
all this delivering forgotten eggs
in soft light
rain drips, too small to be called drops
to tip tap these words
for today's story...
i hope you have enjoyed it.
