What is August like ?

 

a long walk downtown

dodging kids on skateboards

counting the number of dogs with handkerchiefs

 

What is October like ?

 

driving out into the country

on the lookout for skittish deer,  also 

overhead, watching a V made of geese 

 

What is December like? 

 

the reflection of clouds

on the hoods of cars

metallic echoes of late afternoon
