Won’t See the Great Lake Swimmers Tonight

In her red and white
checked picnic table
cloth pattern dress
and black belt

without so many adjectives, she’s not ready
to be seen
after dark. Not ready
to see a white dwarf

star or terrorist
losing control. She is
ready, however, to witness
shifts in the weather

and small adjustments
to the rock garden
behind the row house
where she used to live.
