Scenes from a Late Summer Morning

The smells of curing hay hanging in the damp dark air.
Stillness, stars in the clear pre-dawn sky.
The Big Dipper sparkling.
Crickets chirping.
The smell of skunk wafting closer, closer.
Lining up the black and white dogs,
To test for smells of black and white cat.
Tag, okay.
Mickey, okay.
Caeli, To The Outside Kennel.
Getting out the dish detergent, the vinegar, the old towels.
To wash away the smells of a late summer morning.
