Calendar falling off the refrigerator
half a pie uncovered tiny bite marks left in the crust
Pooki watched her favorite riveting television show
the shepard returned before dusk
no new wood for the evening cut
and laid on top of the DVD player
amid the stale popcorn and nacho chips
four masked ballet dancers
stood at the front door
Bibles in hand.
