Kira K Homsher

Two shirtless teenage boys
Play ball across the street.
They dart in and out of my little square of vision,
Casting long evening shadows down
The sidewalk. Oh, one of them has dropped

The ball: here it rolls down my driveway.
The dog watches too, the picture of envy.
He cannot believe
Someone would throw a ball for any reason
But to bring him pleasure.
