dog star

By Emma Geller

pebble tears,
all mountain eyed, 
in early lush
spring afternoon-

where symbolism
mingled with 
the knotted roots
of that day.

the black dog
crept closer to me,
not soft eyed but 
all teeth, out to prey

with a darkwood 
lurch, 
i got stuck 
in a solar city,

surrounded by
dogwood docks-
lunging 
at the waves.
