The Weight of the Day

busy at work
I cut our phone call short
without a lie

    caught in the roundabout
   a hare runs in circles

the weight of the day
a fly skitters
along the screen

   another ping
   of in-coming email

deer bed down
on an abandoned lawn
late autumn

    the temporary safety
   of our gated lives

Peter Newton Massachusetts, USA

Composed via email over the summer and fall of 2013.
