days before the new

days before the new
year, old
memories stumble
upon even older
memories, overlap,

on the landing

the fifth floor and the
roof, we found it –
a super blue blood
moon
dangling
out the window,
wedged
in a sliver
of brooklyn sky

the year of the dog

the year of the dog
is wagging its tail, ready
to pounce, wrestle the

rooster to bed before it
gets into any more trouble
