mike and the 3 possums

 dande- lyin-lion- malaise..

 the weight of the night in a jar on
 the porch collecting rain.

 my grandfathers English spaniel in the yard.

   a front porch light reflects in the eyes of the possums
   they have surrounded him again...

  I canhear him wimpering, he is afraid..
  he told me once he never wanted to be like 
this drunk in the yard with a bunch of ugly
 creatures hissing at him.

but in his head he dreams of  kangaroo's that 
wear new balance shoes and leap  over globes 
with torn paper borders.

 in his head he walks past the possums steady
 as a deacon carrying communion sunday..

  head held high..

 bright and full as the yellow lions in the grass
 who may turn gray eventually but not quite yet.
