Summer Chronograph: 68
Your new Schwan's rural ice cream delivery driver
is sullen-lost. Or, a few tires blown on scab rock
where U-turns are impossible, your driver is slurping
a tub of French vanilla, cursing his wife for knowing
a fat man at a small town instant-cash strip-mall store.

Summer Chronograph: 56
Sumptuous blue high desert sky, inquisitive
ghost-dog at your side, disbelieving he is dead.
Or is it you, old man, rumpled with confusion
between vital muscle and furnace-chipped bone?
The gone-hound is little more than sad absence.
