(August 8, 1990)
[Companion to "September Evening"]
Then, "Watch out!"
And the frisbee hit,
near, smack off the porch.
I looked up to the apologies,
glancing away from Charlotte's and Wilbur's conversation.
The two boys (strangers), for caution or consideration,
turned to retreat across the street, returned to Jennifer's
where Toni's birthday party surprise still was high in gear.
Boys strut the athlete's part while lounging girls giggle
young teens now, the neighborhood's boys-and-girls (cacophonous, revelling).
Tulip tree houses no hundreds nowchopped,
topped out, remains a giant umbrella.
Mourning doves perch phone lines
before blue early-evening sky
blurred by glasses
