The
man being led through

the
edge of the park by his dog

is
unaware of the crisp sound

the
sole of his shoes make

as
they graze the asphalt,

or
the self-aggrandizing laughter

of
a young man who's ahead

in
a chess match

on
a nearby bench,

or
the expanding shadows

that
claim the sidewalks

as
dusk starts its own routine,

or
of the cream-colored house

on
the corner

across
the street,

where
a young woman

is
standing by the front window,

staring
at his spastic movements,

watching
him hold on to the leash,

falling
in love with him,

just
for a moment,

because
he reminds her

of
someone:

a
man she saw once

in
a dream.
