Things We Have Seen, Videotaping the Porch

There are wild things living

just under our feet. We set up a camera

to record the porch floor, focused on a pile of seed.

Reviewing the evidence, we saw:

A cat who came prowling by

like the ghost of my tabby.

Then a rat, adorable and huge. He nibbled and skirted away

several times within an hour.

These little things,

these are the delights of our life.
