Out of Season

Barely visible
the cat acting
like a tourist
out of season.

Breeze so soft
blow & rain shifts
the other way
out of season.

In the grass melan
choly whose happy
sound the birds
squirrels

coyotes laired
late in the park
talk in their sleep
out of season.

This too out
all up to snuff
toffee nosed
pretension

a pretend friend
bends to expose
truth its own pretense
out of season.
