Now this is good

img_3981The dog by my side in the morning
in the dark:
Orion left his belt outside again,
it’s gone down behind the trees:

soft sounds,
early morning,
the jingle of the cat’s bell around her neck,
the dog’s got a bone to gnaw,
smacks her lips,
pads the carpet,

I lay in the dark a part of it for a sliver and then, apart.
