The other night I woke to my two dogs

barking incessantly from the foot of my bed

the catalyst a large white-tailed deer

standing at the corner of the yard

clearly debating what to do about

all the fences everywhichwhere

among the yards on my street.

What to do where to go what to do

which way to jump whether to jump at all.

I too am unsure what to do where to go

how to get there once I figure it all out

fences of another kind blocking.

But unlike that deer I have

short legs and am not much

of a one for jumping.
