Peeking Across the Fence


(July 1975)

Crane the neck.
Look up.
Over the fence.
The eye’s see,
As the nose pops over the edge.

Look there!
Someone comes.
A trailer Dweller.
The neighbor walking the dog.
The dog does its thing.

Laughter.
Nosiness.
Jus’ gawking.
Seeing nothing important.
Feeling dumb.

Again the neck cranes.
Look up;
Look over the fence.
It’s a couple of girls.
Nothing important?!

But the walk off.
Never noticing.
Passing by.
Jus’ visiting.
Oh well…
