augury doggerel

Friday, February 21, 2003


I'm watching the old man who lives next door. He comes over the snow with a shovel and an old dog and scoops up a heap of bare soil left by the moles at night. He looks out at the horizon as if thinking of things more important, then walks away as casually as an old man can walk with a shovelful of pilfered molehill. Two minutes later, he and dog are back.

Are they working with the moles?
