Right From Here

Dogs snap sticks
Sip cold coffee
I’m walking
That water’s the sky from here

Leaves dance, drift
Why cold coffee?
Not talking
There’s no wind around right here

In my head is banana bread
Olives, cheese, a few more things
Dancing beds and near instead
Fresh homestead and love’s not dead

Thinking twists and spirals
into things it didn’t mean to be

Shelved song hits
Drop cold coffee
They saw me
The distance gets down right here

That man flipped
Bent cold coffee
She’s awing
This lake’s a painting from here
