“Duck-Blinds”

Posted on Monday, January 26th, 2015

“Duck-Blinds”

Sturdy black iron
Slated fences mark
Those four homes opposite—
Across the flat pond;

Aging residents
Gather with loved ones
Wondering where youth—
Dreams vanished,

Listening to
Water-spray from pond
Like white-noise to dull
Lost consciousness;

Above flocks of geese
Fly in formation to
Escape hunters huddled in
Camouflaged duck-blinds.
